For every tear of my degredation
For every promise I might cling on to
You have come.

A discovery of love.

Tumultuous fountain your treasure of grace.

Safe

Safely held tight in your embrace

Welded into one forever
Saving love expressed in grace.

Splintered without
Without remorse
Remorse of love worn pieces
Pieces of your grace.

Hope

I had to cherish hope
That tomorrow would come
That the hate would surrender
That each face found shatter
That love would not falter
That you would never throw the first stone.
I had to cherish hope.

(John 8: 10 - "Where are your accusers? Didn't even one of them condemn you?).

In your crimson steam.

In the room of uncharted grace
Faith breaks through the past
As love begins to glow
I listen to your words of truth
You are mine
You are mine.

With cries of passion your story is told
Resurrection life has now taken hold
Ripples of love.

You Have Seized Me

You have seized me 
Held with your sweet affection

A slave of pain now set free 
Immersed in your ocean of redemption 
Tenderly embraced as your possession 
You have seized me.
