It’s like open heart surgery, so many knots, so many undone
You push me to love and you keep pouring out your love through me
I want the love to stop because my heart fears that I’ll not be enough
My heart fears that I won’t be able to take the pain of hearing about their pain
I want it to stop but I just cry because it’s in crying that I release the pain
I am able to do all things through Christ who strengthens me
I will go into the pit and dig up people if I have to
I will cross mountains and rescue a starving sheep
I will send a life boat to the drowning sheep
I will even if my heart keeps breaking over and over and over
Your love keeps pouring into me
But I’ve never felt this kind of persevering love
It knows no bounds, is not afraid of the dirt, is not afraid of what is true
It doesn’t fence itself in a white picket fence
Is not afraid to go into the country side, is not afraid of rats and cockroaches, is not afraid to confront demons, is not afraid to break social norms, is not afraid of judgement, is not afraid to speak her mind.
This is a love that has no end, no beginning.
