I love a love song

24 Jul

What a joy it is to be loved! During our youth conference tonight a group of teens performed a skit to the below song about the love of Christ.  The skit was dynamic.  The song was impactful.  I have posted the lyrics to the song “Arms Wide Open” by Misty Edwards. Please read the lyrics and then watch the Youtube video I posted below.  I promise you’ll be blessed.  Christ stands with His arms wide open!

“What does love look like?” is the question I’ve been pondering; “What does love look like?”

“What does love look like?” is the question I’ve been asking of You

I once believed that love was romance, just a chance

I even thought that love was for the lucky and the beautiful

I once believed that love was a momentary bliss, but love is more than this

All You ever wanted was my attention, all You ever wanted was love from me

All You ever wanted was my affections, to sit here at Your feet

Then I sat down, a little frustrated and confused; if all of life comes down to love

Then love has to be more than sentiment, more than selfishness and selfish gain

And then I saw Him there, hanging on a tree, looking at me

I saw Him there, hanging on a tree, looking at me

He was looking at me, looking at Him, staring through me

I could not escape those beautiful eyes, and I began to weep and weep

 He had arms wide open, a heart exposed

Arms wide open; He was bleeding, bleeding

Love’s definition, love’s definition was looking at me

Looking at Him, hanging on a tree, I began to weep and weep and weep and weep

 This is how I know what love is, this is how I know what love is

 And as I sat there weeping, crying, those beautiful eyes, full of desire and love

 He said to me, “You shall love Me, You shall love Me

You shall love Me, You shall love Me”

 With arms wide open, a heart exposed

With arms wide open, bleeding, sometimes bleeding

If anybody’s looking for love in all the wrong places

If you’ve been searching for love, come to Me, come to Me

Take up your cross, deny yourself, forget your father’s house and run, run with Me

You were made for abandonment, wholeheartedness

You were made for someone greater, someone bigger, so follow Me

And You’ll come alive when you learn to die
