Ruth's Song

I had a great time at dinner last night with James and Thomas before they headed back to London. Really, I just love them both.

I have been thinking a lot lately about the Lord as my husband. And in particular about how the story of Ruth really is a symbolic picture of our relationship with the Lord. This song has been stirring in my heart for a while. So here it is:

Ruth's Song
by Me
All rights reserved

I will go whever you go
I will be where you are.
Your people will be mine
No matter how near or how far.
I will take my place beside you
You are all I am
Let nothing separate us
or ever be apart again

I am the bride
It's only you for me
I am the bride
You have redeemed
I am the bride
Robed in white
I am the bride
Pursued by your light
I am the bride

Come quickly my redeemer
Do not delay
I need you more than yesterday
So at your feet I will lay
Spread your arms to cover me
And hold me when I fall
Be nothing more than my everything
And nothing less than my all

  1. 1) congrats on the 2.2 pounds - VERY exciting and I'm really proud of you, eewee.
    2) I love that song. I just was in a canoe with two of my girls reading Ruth and I talked with them about the covenant that Ruth makes and how I want that to be my covenant with my husband. Then I read this song on your blog (there is another song by a messianic jew that I love that is the same theme) and I was touched.
    i love you, and I love Jesus.
