Your Love is Strong by Jon Foreman

These lyrics has been a favorite of those listening to Jon Foreman in his aftershows. This piece shows the powerful love of God for us, displayed by what He’s done and is doing for us now, and what He’ll do for us. This is a combination of the Lord’s model prayer and the discourse on needs.

Heavenly Father,  You always amaze me
Let Your kingdom come in my world and in my life

Give me the food I need
To live through today

And forgive me as I forgive
The people that wrong me.
Lead me far from temptation
Deliver me from the evil one.

I look out the window
The birds are composing
Not a note is out of tune
Or out of place

I walk to the meadow
And stare at the flowers
Better dressed than any girl
On her wedding day.

So why should I worry?
Why do I freak out?
God knows what I need
You know what I need.

The Kingdom of the Heavens
Is now advancing
Invade my heart
Invade this broken town.

The Kingdom of the Heavens
Is buried treasure
Would you sell yourself
To buy the one you’ve found?

Two things You told me
That You are strong
And You love me
Yes, You love me

Your love is, Your love is
Your love is strong
Your love is, Your love is
Your love is strong!

Our God in Heaven
Hallowed be Thy name
Above all names
Your kingdom come
Your will be done

On earth as it is in Heaven
Give us today our daily bread
Forgive us weary sinners
Keep us far from our vices
And deliver us from these prisons!

“Your Love is Strong” (based on Matthew 6:9-13, 25-31) is from the Spring EP, released 2008. © Atlantic/Lowercase People Records.
