A Song for Sunday: Love Is War

I have been borderline obsessed with this song since I heard Hillsong United sing it at Passion 2014. I finally decided to make it my 2015 theme song to match up with my One Word 365 – fight. More about that tomorrow.

Emphasis added to the lyrics below. These are the phrases that speak most to me lately.

VERSE
In Your justice and Your mercy
Heaven walked the broken road
Here to fight this sinner’s battle
Here to make my fall Your own

PRE-CHORUS
Turn my eyes to see Your face
As all my fears surrendered
Hold my heart within this grace
Where burden turns to wonder

CHORUS
I will fight to follow
I will fight for love
To throw my life forever
Into the triumph of the Son

VERSE
Let Your love be my companion
In the war against my pride
Long to break all vain obsession
Till You’re all that I desire

BRIDGE
And I know Your love has won it all
You took the fall
To embrace my sorrows
I know You took the fight
You came and died but the grave was borrowed
I know You stood again
So I can stand with a life to follow
In the light of Your Name
