The Heart of God
|In a time before time,
There was God; there was God divine
On His throne, all alone, in eternity.
But He had a heart’s desire!
And a counterpart required!
When this purpose had been weighed,
An economy was made
And concealed within the hidden heart of God.
|With this plan, He formed man,
Who surveyed all that God had made;
But he ached for a mate, for a counterpart.
Man could taste th’ eternal yearning
That so long in God was burning!
Eve was built from Adam’s side.
Adam’s heart was satisfied;
And this story told the hidden heart of God.
|But when Eve was deceived
What was pure fell beyond a cure;
Generations would slave under vanity.
Then to turn this age of mystery,
God was born in human history!
And the answer for the earth
Was that Christ so loved the church,
He would die to satisfy the heart of God.
|So alone, this grain dies
But with joy to obtain His prize
And a life both divine and unbreakable!
He arises; powers hear it!
He will court her as the Spirit!
Blood and water from His side
Will redeem and build His bride.
She will satisfy the riven heart of God.
|She’s alive by His breath!
What a life! Overcoming death!
Flowing in, washing sin,
Purging age away
So that He might sanctify her
By the washing of the water;
Adding beauty, adding health
To present her to Himself
Full of glory for the holy heart of God.
|In a time beyond time,
There is God, now with man entwined.
It is done! They are one for eternity.
Hallelujah, what a story!
She is brought from gloom to glory!
The desire from the start
For a bride, a counterpart,
Satisfied inside the happy heart of God.
