how He loves.

In the midst of a day full of sorrow and hurt, there is only one thing I can be reminded of – how He loves us. So with hands held high, tears streaming down my face, and a broken heart, I must loudly proclaim that He loves. Especially today when my circumstances say otherwise.

He is jealous for me
Love’s like a hurricane
I am a tree, bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy
And all of a sudden I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory
And I realize just how beautiful you are and how great your affections are for me.

Oh, how He loves us so
Oh, how He loves us
How He loves us so.

Yeah, He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves us
Oh how He loves

He is our portion
He is our prize
Drawn to redemption by the grace is His eyes
If His grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking

And heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet 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 that He loves us

Oh how He loves us.

Because His love is better than life. Even when that love hurts me and it hurts HIM to love me the way I need to be loved. and how often I need to be loved the way He loves in spite of my protests that it’s too painful.
