If I could say just one more thing
Before my life flits away,
I would tell you how precious you are to the King –
His life, He was willing to pay.
His pain, oh He bled
Like hell itself –
He went through the depths for you
And He waits and He aches- He watches chances slip away
As His heart is pierced right through.
He watches you striving, He watches you fall –
He longs to strengthen your heart;
He sees the destruction that leaves you broken –
He loved you from the start
He catches each tear and keeps them in a bottle
He saw you before you were born –
And you’re so busy living life on your own
His very existence you scorn.
And all He longs to tell you is, “You are worth everything” –
But for now, He cannot be heard –
Yet a glimmer of hope is found now and then,
In a heart that He has stirred.
A gentleman, He will not rain down fire
Or force you to come to His side,
But He promises to be a refuge and help –
A place where you can hide.
Just one thing – His love never fails,
And He’ll wait a lifetime for the prize –
You were worth it all
You are worth it all
Irreplacable, in His eyes.
