07. Ought To Be

The House You're Building
by Audrey Assad


I love you more than a slow-falling summer rain
More than a silence that only the snow leaves behind
I love you more
And I love you better than the grey of the Autumn air
Better than Spring in its blooming against the sky
I love you more

It may not be red as the roses yet
It may not be strong as the old oak trees, but …
Love planted deeply becomes what it ought to be

Your love is steady and sure as the mountains high
Moving my heart like a river that gently bends
Your love is sure
Your love is wide open spaces where I can run
And yet, we’re tangled up roots in the warm broken earth
Our love is sure

And it may not be clear as the morning yet
It may not be wide as a restless sea, but …
Love given freely becomes what it ought to be

And … hearts given freely becomes what they ought
And … love given freely becomes what it ought to be
What it ought to be
