Love's Definition



“What does love look like?” is the question I’ve been pondering
“What does love look like?”

“What does love look like?” is the question I’ve been asking of You


I once believed that love was romance, just a chance
I even thought that love was for the lucky and the beautiful

I once believed that love was a momentary bliss

But love is more than this

All You ever wanted was my attention

All You ever wanted was love from me

All You ever wanted was my affections, to sit here at Your feet

And Tell me
“What does love look like?” is the question I’ve been pondering
“What does love look like?”
“What does love look like?” is the question I’ve been asking of You

Then I sat down, a little frustrated and confused
If all of life comes down to love

Then love has to be more than sentiment

More than selfishness and selfish gain


And then I saw Him there, hanging on a tree, looking at me
I saw Him there, hanging on a tree, looking at me

He was looking at me, looking at Him, staring through me

I could not escape those beautiful eyes

And I began to weep and weep


He had arms wide open, a heart exposed
Arms wide open; He was bleeding, bleeding

Arms wide open, a heart exposed
Arms wide open; He was bleeding, bleeding

Love’s definition, love’s definition was looking at me
Looking at Him, hanging on a tree

I began to weep and weep and weep and weep

This is how I know what love is, this is how I know what love is
This is how I know what love is, this is how I know what love is
This is how I know what love is, this is how I know what love is
This is how I know what love is, this is how I know what love is
This is how I know what love is, this is how I know what love is

And as I sat there weeping, crying
Those beautiful eyes, full of desire and love

He said to me, “You shall love Me, You shall love Me,
You shall love Me, You shall love Me, You shall love Me, 

You shall love Me, You shall love Me, You shall love Me

With arms wide open, a heart exposed
With arms wide open, bleeding, sometimes bleeding

With arms wide open, a heart exposed
With arms wide open, bleeding, sometimes bleeding

He said, "You shall love Me, You shall love Me,
You shall love Me, You shall love Me, You shall love Me, 
You shall love Me, You shall love Me, You shall love Me"

If anybody’s looking for love in all the wrong places
If you’ve been searching for love, come to Me, come to Me

Take up your cross, deny yourself

Forget your father’s house and run, run with Me

You were made for abandonment, wholeheartedness

You were made for someone greater, someone bigger, so follow Me

And You’ll come alive when you learn to die.


He said, "You shall love Me, You shall love Me,
You shall love Me, You shall love Me, You shall love Me, 
You shall love Me, You shall love Me, You shall love Me"

With arms wide open, a heart exposed
With arms wide open, bleeding, sometimes bleeding

With arms wide open, a heart exposed
With arms wide open, bleeding, sometimes bleeding

I am saying yes to You, We say Yes
Show us the way of love, teach us the way of love
We will go anywhere for love.
