For her

Don’t you want to know your God?
What’s hidden in His heart for you?
How much He longs for you to come
And open up—
To let Him in to every part
Let Him reveal what’s on His heart
What was the joy set before Him?
  It was for her the church—His bride
It was for her, willingly He died
She is the joy deep in His heart
His masterpiece—
His counterpart.
The Lord chose you to be a part
Of His great plan, His work of art.
What wonder! What a privilege!
To satisfy
His yearning to share all He is—
Divine, unsearchable riches!
What wisdom, multifarious expressed!
As we enjoy and enter in
To all He is then we’ll begin
To understand the feeling in
His heart toward us.
What love that motivated Him
To come to us, despite our sin
Why did He go and sell all that He had?

Praise the Lord for the church!!



This song so romantic and touching. He gives all He has for her, the church. Wonderful to see His whole idea and plan is just for us, His Body, His masterpiece, His counterpart. Can we look down on ourselves? The King has done the best, what should we do??? Prepare His coming. Glorify our Lord.

Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives even as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her

26 That He might sanctify her ,cleansing her by the washing of the water in the word,

27 That He might present the church to Himself glorious,not having spot or wrinkle or any such things but that she would be holy and without blemish.

Praise the Lord for the masterpiece and glorious counterpart ! We love our Lord and His church!



This hymn always remind me of how precious the church is to Him. The church is His counterpart, His bride, His masterpiece....that we need to love the church as He does. The Lord even died for the church. This song always touched me every time I listen to it, and I have never get bored of how meaningful and precious the church is. I really love this song...Amen.

This hymn brings me out of myself, my circumstances & my self absorption as I realise what love He has, what selflessness, what need. God has a deep desire and I, along with all of His blessed saints can satisfy that need just by opening to Him. Oh Lord, the tears flow, I love You, I love You. Have Your way in us... Bless you all.

"Why did He go and sell all that He had?"

It was for her, willingly, He died.

It was for her, the church.

It was for me, for you, for us.

Thank You, my Lord, it was for me.
