08. Beloved

Over and Underneath
by Tenth Avenue North



 

Love of my life
Look deep in my eyes
There you will find what you need
Give me your life

The lust and the lies
And the past youíre afraid I might see
Youíve been running away from me

Youíre my beloved lover
Iím yours
Death shall not part us
Itís you I died for
For better or worse
Forever weíll be
My love it unites us and it binds you to me
Itís a mystery

Love of my life
Look deep in my eyes
There you will find what you need

I'm the giver of life
Iíll clothe you in white
My immaculate bride you will be
Come running home to me

Youíre my beloved lover
Iím yours
Death shall not part us
Itís you I died for
For better or worse forever weíll be
My love it unites us and it binds you to me
Itís a mystery

Youíve been a mistress my wife
Chasing lovers that wonít satisfy
Wonít you let me make you my bride
You will drink of my lips and youíll taste new life

Youíre my beloved lover
Iím yours
Death shall not part us
Itís you I died for
For better or worse forever weíll be
My love it unites us and it binds you to me
Itís a mystery



Behind the Song:
ďThe Bible is filled with wedding metaphors. When it talks about Christ and his church, it uses the analogy of a husband and a wife. In fact you could even argue that the reason marriage exists is to point to the greater reality of Christ. Over and over and over again, Christ calls the church, not just his wife, but his wayward wife. I was thinking one day, I wondered what it would sound like if Christ gave his wedding vows to me, as his church, as his bride and what those would sound like. So ĎBelovedí is Jesus making vows to a wayward wife and the beautiful thing about Jesus is that when youíre his bride, divorce is not an option.Ē - Mike Donehey (Tenth Avenue North)
