Lyrics

Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

I am the Rose of Sharon
a wild anemone
as lily 'mong the thorn trees
so is my love to me

an apple tree 'mong wild trees
my love is in my sight
I sit down in his shadow
his fruit is my delight

he brought me to his palace
and to the banquet hall
to share with me his greatness
I who am least of all

oh, give me help and comfort
for I am sick with shame
...

don't make me talk about weather
please don't make me talk about trends
and don't ask my opinion of the latest style
can't we talk about something
that's never gonna end?

I just wanna talk about Jesus
I just wanna talk about His love
how it frees us
I just wanna talk about Jesus
and I just wanna talk about His love
He's the one we should all be talking of

don't make me think about fortune
don't make me think about fame
don't make me think about the friends that fail me
I'd rather think of someone who'll always stay the same

I just...

Jesus, I saw You today
in the mountains
You spoke to me
in fervent whispers of cool, sweet air
Your trees were standing sentinel
below the snowy heights
while You spoke to me of greatness
and love
and condescension

and I just sat in silence
when I saw what You had made
and I wondered at Your love for me
when I saw You in the mountains today

Jesus, I saw You today
by the waters
You spoke to me
in rhythmic whispers of warm, salt air
Your white seabirds were daring me
to follow toward the sun
while You spoke to...

I wanna spend time with you
not just a moment or two
not just a year or a few
I wanna live life with you

there are so few times in life
when people really live
and there are so few moments
when people really give
most people say they want love
but they don't want their plans to change
ah, but it's just fine with me
if all my life and dreams you rearrange

I know it's a miracle how
God led you to me
and why he cared for us
that way I'll never see
and just to think that God meant
you for me and me for you
it makes me get...

Lyrics & notes

16 Nov 1974

I was raised in a box in the city
oh, no
I was really raised in the country on an orchard
a blossom-filled orchard
but my soul lived in a box in the city
yes, my soul lived in a box in the city
my soul lived in a box
most of the time
most of the time

but I've been freed
from slavery to selfish desires
from living my life
as part of a world full of liars
yes, I've been freed
from all the loneliness
that used to plague me so
and I want the whole world to know
I've been freed
by Jesus

then I moved to a place...

it's a pity
you say you can't find
a good enough reason
to believe anymore
it's such an art
the way you've learned
yourself to close your eyes
to the answers
you once searched for

you've got it all worked out so
you don't have to depend on anyone
well it might seem like a foolproof plan
but it's a fool who wants to live a life without love

anyone can see it's a shame
you've got your own set of
questions to which no one
could begin to reply
and you're so sure of yourself
and your philosophy you laugh
inside each...

Lyrics & notes

5 May 1975

lately I've been going through a rough, lonely time
I couldn't get my eyes off of my dreams
but even when my road becomes a long, hard climb
He's there to take my hand and say
"It's brighter than it seems!"

Jesus is enough to make me smile
the light of His Word shines around me mile after mile
when my eyes meet His it's just impossible to frown
and with His love inside
you just can't keep me down
Jesus is enough to make me smile

when I look at myself, I lose perspective on things
and I forget the joy of reaching out
but then His Word reminds me...

23 Sep 1975

Jesus never fails
Jesus never fails
I've got a friend who won't
ever forsake me
Jesus never fails

He gives me songs in the night
when the sleep won't come
He holds me tight
when all my other friends are sleeping
He hears me when I'm weeping
with lullabies so sweet
with love He bids my sorrows cease
with hands that knew the pain of nails
He wipes the tears away

Lyrics & notes

1 Aug 1973

just to think about You, Lord
makes me feel like singing
and just to think that You still care
it makes me feel like bringing
all my love to You
and I do
just to know a love so true

just to think how You have made
this empty life worth living
and just to know that You'll be there
it makes me feel like giving
my whole life to You
and I do
makes the sky seem so blue
just to think about You, Lord

I will never understand the reason for Your love
or the reason why You think that I'm worth thinking of
maybe that's what makes...
