Extravagant

Post by Guest on Mon Nov 17, 2008 6:31 pm

This is a song I just wrote for our band-in-the-making...I'd love any comments! Smile (And yes, I have music for it...I just need to get it written down. Smile )

Extravagant

Jesus, you thrill me with your love
My heart trembles at the sound
Of your voice of peace

No curtain hangs between us
My acceptance is assured
No price I'm asked to pay
To call you Lord

CHORUS
I am your hell and you are my heaven
Love greater by far than has ever been given
Walking boldly through death
To surround me with life
Extravagant love
An extravagant price

The love that overwhelms my soul
Flows freely from your heart
The floodgates open wide
They ask no toll

The peace that passes this world's calm
The joy that fills my life with songs
Are free if I will open wide my arms

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Red roses laid carelessly across a car hood
Red blood deeply staining splinters of wood
What is the world's love
Compared to this?

SECOND CHORUS
You have given me life, you have blessed me with heaven
Love greater by far than has ever been given
You have made the exchange
Of a life for a life
Extravagant love
An extravagant price

Yeah, that was the one line I debated about keeping in, but I like it because it's an actual truth stated in a kind of shocking way. If you think about it, we are the reason Jesus had to experience hell, and he is the only reason we can experience heaven. I probably should have clarified that... Smile
