A Song of Love

I think of you,
I love you.

What words can I use to express that love?
What can I say?
How can I show you
how much you mean to me?
How can I prepare myself
to meet with you?
What can show the depth of my love?

And so I sing this song for you,
I create a symphony,
a feast for the senses

– all to worship
and adore you

Blessing and Honour

Psalm 45:1-2, 6-9 (CEV)

(A special psalm for the people of Korah and for the music leader. To the tune “Lilies.” A love song.)

For a Royal Wedding

45 My thoughts are filled
with beautiful words
    for the king,
and I will use my voice
    as a writer would use
    pen and ink.

No one is as handsome as you!
    Your words are always kind.
    That is why God
    will always bless you.

You are God, and you will rule
    forever as king.
    Your royal power
    brings about justice.
You love justice and hate evil.
    And so, your God chose you
    and made you happier
    than any of your friends.
The sweet aroma of the spices
myrrh, aloes, and cassia,
    covers your royal robes.
You enjoy the music of harps
    in palaces decorated
    with ivory.
Daughters of kings are here,
and your bride stands
    at your right side,
    wearing a wedding gown
    trimmed with pure gold.

Come With Me

2015-07-21 16.39.49Come with me.

I’m here,
calling to you.
I have come for you,
looking
to find where you are.

I love you.

I long for you to come with me.
All I have promised has come true.
Even the fig trees are now budding,
and I know
how you’ve clung on
while they didn’t,
I really do.

I’m here.

I love you.
Come with me
on this journey
of love
and life
together.

O Love That Will Not Let Me Go

Song of Solomon 2:8-13 (CEV)

Winter Is Past

She Speaks:

I hear the voice
    of the one I love,
as he comes leaping
over mountains and hills
    like a deer or a gazelle.
Now he stands outside our wall,
looking through the window
10     and speaking to me.

He Speaks:

My darling, I love you!
    Let’s go away together.
11 Winter is past,
    the rain has stopped;
12 flowers cover the earth,
    it’s time to sing.
The cooing of doves
    is heard in our land.
13 Fig trees are bearing fruit,
while blossoms on grapevines
    fill the air with perfume.
My darling, I love you!
    Let’s go away together.
