10. Won't You Be My Love

The Generous Mr. Lovewell
by MercyMe



 

When you fall asleep tonight
In your warm and cozy room
Know that I'm awake and I've
Got no shelter and no food

I am not alone
My friends are broke and lost
Looking for someone
To lead them to my cross

I need your help
I need your help

Wonít you be my voice calling
Wonít you be hands healing
Wonít you be my feet walking
Into a broken world

Wonít you be my chain breaker
Wonít you be my peace maker
Wonít you be my hope and joy
Wonít you be my LOVE

The other side of the world
She is just a few days old
A helpless little girl
With no family of her own
She is not to blame
For the journey she is on
Her life is no mistake
Wonít you lead her to my cross

Wonít you be my voice calling
Wonít you be hands healing
Wonít you be my feet walking
Into a broken world

Wonít you be my chain breaker
Wonít you be my peace maker
Wonít you be my hope and joy
Wonít you be my LOVE

To those I call my own
To those Iíve set aside
As spotless without blame
The chosen ones my bride

We will be your voice calling
We will be your hands healing
We will be your feet walking
Into a broken world

We will be your chain breaker
We will be your peace maker
We will be your hope and joy
We will be your LOVE

We will be your LOVE

Behind the Song:
"A dear friend named Thad Cockrell sent me this song and it knocked me off my feet. It was the heart of "Lovewell" and we knew it had to be on the album. We re-wrote the 2nd verse from the original in honor of Mike and Abby Scheuchzer adopting their gorgeous little girl, Millie." - MercyMe
