Oh How He Loves Us - How I see it
So David Crowder’s song “How He Loves Us” has always been a favorite of mine. I have heard it many times, and I love it so much that back when I was planning a wedding, I had the intention on playing it before the ceremony as a worship song for everyone to sing.
Well, today as I was waiting for my ride to work, this song came on the radio. But something was different this time, it was almost as if I really listened to the lyrics this time. And I mean REALLY listened. And really comprehended what they said and more importantly, what they meant. Here is what I got from it:
He is jealous for 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 realized just how beautiful You are and how great Your affections are for me
Oh, How He loves us oh, Oh, how He loves us. How He loves us, oh.
We are His portion and He is our prize. Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes. If His grace was an ocean we’re all sinking.
And Heaven meets Earth like an unforeseen kiss and my heart turns violently inside of my chest.
And I don’t have time to maintain these regrets when I think about the way, He loves us…
Oh, How He loves us oh. Oh, how He loves us. How He loves us, oh….
