one of my absolute favorite bands, david crowder band, has a new single from their upcoming album available for download on itunes. this makes my heart so happy. i am double the happiness because it also happens to be “how he loves” one of my absolute favorite worship songs at church. a song my mom loves to sing to claire. and a song that we most definitely will be singing at claire’s birthday celebration.
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 realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.
And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us so.
We are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
So Heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about, the way…
He loves us.
