how he loves us.

"And He is jealous from me, loves like a hurricane, I am a tree
Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy
When all of a sudden I am unaware of these afflictions
Eclipsed by glory and I realize just how beautiful You are
And how great Your affections are for me

And oh, how He loves us, oh
Oh, how He loves us, how He loves us all

And we are His portion and He is our prize
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes
If His grace is an ocean, we're all sinking

And heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest
I don't have time to maintain these regrets
When I think about the way

Oh, how He loves us, oh
Oh, how He loves us, how He loves all
How He loves

Yeah, He loves us, oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves us, oh how He loves
Oh, I love

Yeah, He loves us, yeah, He loves us
How He loves us, oh, how He loves us all"




    I just love this song so much.

  2. that made me start crying in the middle of the library.. but its so true! i love when he said "the love i am singing about is not a pretty, clean... its not a hollywood hot pink love... its the kind of love willing to love things that are messy, wiling to love even the difficult and the kind of gross things..." amazing.

  3. seriously, blew my mind. john mark mcmillan is the man. that's why this song is so great. i think it could bring me to tears at any point in my life.
