LOVERS OF CHRIST
Listen to the audio in MP3 format (2.26 MB)

Lovers of Christ in His ascension
enjoy the riches of His life.
She becomes His private garden
with its fountain, fruit and spice.
Christ is hers and she is
Christ's dear love.

She is as beautiful as Tirzah
as lovely as Jerusalem.
Through her living in
Christ's ascension
her dear heart is now His home.
She's become the sanctuary of God.

Who is this woman I am seeing?
Shining forth as the moon and sun.
She is absolutely heavenly,
from the old creation free;
overcoming all to live within the veil.

An army terrible with banners
Christ's lovers overcome to be.
Those attracted by His beauty,
fully trusting in His power.
Her romance is now the
dances of two camps.

The Shulamite, His duplication,
His counterpart has now become.
She's the same in life and nature,
His expression to the full;
consumated as the New Jerusalem.

IN, IN, IN
Listen to the audio in MP3 format (2.50 MB)

One of the last things
that the Son said,
before He died and rose up
from the dead,
Was that He'd go prepare a
place for us, that where He is
we too could be.

Chorus:
He said: "In my Father, In Me, In you,
in that day you'll know
I'm in my Father, you're in Me
and I am in you."

He spoke of going and returning.
He'd send the Spirit
(whom we already knew).
He said He would not leave us orphans,
because He lives we would live too.

Chorus:
God became a man
just like you and me.
Lived a human life
Oh, so perfectly.
Died an all-inclusive death
and then He rose up to become
the all-inclusive, compound,
life-giving, indwelling Spirit.
Then breathing into His disciples
He told them, "Receive ye the Holy Breath".
This the fulfillment of what He had spoken,
"In that day I will be in you."

Chorus:
So now today we're coinhering.
We dwell in Him and He is dwelling in us.
We're in the sweet incorporation
of God and man, how glorious!

Spirit, dear Spirit,

Yes, you have the nine,

Dear Spirit, you're sweeping
all over the earth.

Father, dear Father,
have mercy on mankind!
He's fallen to the pigs' pen,
when will he return?
Dear Father, just kiss them,
Your sons coming home.

Father, of mercy,
clothe him with the best robe.
Kill the fatted calf
and eat and be merry.
He was lost, but found,
was dead, but now he lives.

BUT HOLDING TO TRUTH IN LOVE
Listen to the audio in MP3 format (1.28 MB)

But holding to truth in love
we may grow up in all things
into Him who is the Head,
Christ is the Head,

Out from whom all the Body,
being joined together and being knit together
through every joint of the rich supply
and through the operation in the measure
of each one part, of each one part.

Causes the growth of the Body unto
the building up of itself in love, in love.
(Sung twice) (Second time repeat, "in love" 3 times)

I have fought the good fight;
I have finished the course;
I have fought the good fight;
I have kept the faith.

Henceforth there is laid up for me

will recompense me in that day,
and not only me, but also all those
who have loved His appearing.

I LOVE GOD BECAUSE
Listen to the audio in MP3 format (1.98 MB)

I love God because He loved me long
before the world began.
I love God because He knew my destiny.

part of His eternal plan.
I love God because He first loved me.

Chorus:
I love Him for all the things
He's done for me.
I love Him for all that He is,
all that He is to me.
But, most of all,
I love Him as the Spirit who
deep within my spirit lives.

I love God because He came in time
to be the Son of Man.
I love God because He gave Himself for me.
I love God because He conquered death
that I might live again.
I love God because He first loved me.

I love God because He's processed now
to be my life within.
I love God because He is transforming me.
I love God because He's building up
the New Jerusalem.
I love God because He still loves me.

NONE OF SELF AND ALL OF THEE
Listen to the audio in MP3 format (2.62 MB)

Oh, the bitter shame and sorrow,
that a time could ever be,
when I let the Savior's pity
plead in vain, and proudly answered,
all of self, and none of Thee,
all of self, and none of Thee.

Yet He found me; I beheld Him
bleeding on the cursed tree;
heard Him pray, forgive them, Father,
and my wistful heart said faintly,
some of self, and some of Thee,
some of self, and some of Thee.

Day by day His tender mercy,
healing, helping, full and free,
sweet and strong, and ah! so patient,
brought me lower while I whispered,
less of self, and more of Thee,
less of self, and more of Thee.

Higher than the highest heavens,
deeper than the deepest sea,
Lord, Thy love at last hath conquered;
grant me now my heart's petition,
none of self, and all of Thee,
none of self, and all of Thee.

THIS DIVINE ROMANCE
Listen to the audio in MP3 format (5.20 MB)

How could a country girl like me
become Your match
Your bride to be?
You're holy and You are divine,
but I'm fallen and human.

Without You Lord I have no chance
to be like You in this romance.
but You chose me ere the world began;
nothing could change Your plan.

Chorus 1:
This divine romance
is My heart's deep plan.
I became a lowly man
to court My country girl.
Nothing could deter,
nothing can alter,
My eternal love for her.
I'll gain My country girl.

No man or angel ever knew
this secret hidden deep in You.
That You desired to be one with man
before the world began.
Though sin came in to ruin me
through Satan's scheme and subtlety;
nothing could break Your love for me
to gain me totally.

As King of kings You became a man.
You died for me,
I've been redeemed.
In resurrection made us queen
to marry You my King.
From death You rose and entered me.
I now possess Your divinity.
In life and nature we're the same:
both human and divine.

Chorus 2:
In Your love I'm drawn.
To You I belong.
I am not my own, Lord,
I'm Yours alone.
By Your love I'm drawn.
In Your name I'm charmed
and Your Person captured me
for I've been kissed by Thee.

Lord, in this close, sweet fellowship
Lord be with me so intimate
so personal and affectionate,
a sweet relationship.
Lord, daily change my inward being.
Lord, all my heart possessing.
In all my being transforming
to be Your bride and queen.

I DO NOT KNOW
Listen to the audio in MP3 format (3.88 MB)

I do not know where they
have laid Him.
The stone is taken away from the tomb.
Oh! they have taken Him away!
Oh! where is He?

Disciples came and saw
the empty tomb;
but went away so soon to
their own homes.
Their satisfied with just the facts,
but, where's my Lord?

Chorus 1:
Where is He, my Jesus?
Where is He, my Beloved?
Where is He Whom my
soul doth love?
Jesus, my love, I just want You.


My heart is broken from
my deepest need.
Don't ask me, angels,
why I'm weeping.
Nothing but Jesus fills my inner being.
Oh! where's my love?

Someone is standing right behind me.
It's just the gardener, I can barely see.
Sir, if you've carried Him away.
Oh! where is He?

Chorus 2:
Where is He, my Jesus?
Where is He, my Beloved?
Tell me where you have laid Him
and I'll carry Him away,
I'll carry Him away.

And then I heard a voice say,"Mary".
That sweetest voice that
penetrated me.
It is the voice of my Beloved,
Jesus, my love.

Chorus 3:
I have found my Jesus!
I have found my Beloved!
I have found Whom my soul doth love,
Jesus, my love, I just love You!

But Jesus told me not to
touch Him yet.
He must ascend first to the Father;
and to My Father and your Father,
to My God and your God.

Go and tell My brothers,
I ascend to the Father
To My Father and your Father
And my God and your God,
Go tell My brothers.

Just one touch of You, dear Lord,

just one kiss from You,
You're all I need my love.

Let me hear again Your voice.
You are now my final choice.
Speak in love to me.
I'll waste myself on Thee.

Chorus 1:
Nothing and no one can satisfy me
but You anymore.
Jesus, I love You, my only desire.
Oh Lord, I just love You.

Let me touch You as before,
craving for You more and more,
You're the very best!
I'll drop the rest for You.

Oh, the kisses of Your mouth

Lord, You're full of grace!
Oh, what a taste my love!

Only You alone will do.

Keep me close to You,
just joined to You as One.

Lord be in me so real.

Verses

1
Is there someone who's a friend
that I can open to?
A someone who understands
all that I'm going through?
A someone when there's no one
I can always come to?
There is no someone like this One.

A someone who'll not forsake

Is there someone who can reach
down to the depths of my being?
A someone who can fix

A someone who can love in me
when there's no love in me?
There is no someone like this one.

my heart doth thirst for Thee;

beholding constantly.

In such a fellowship
Thou, Lord, art grace to me;
my heart and spirit gladdened, filled,
I enter rest in Thee.

still seeking after Thee,
continue in the Word and prayer
till Thou dost flow thru me.

LORD, HOW LONG, DEAR BRIDEGROOM
Listen to the audio in MP3 format (6.00 MB)

Lord, how long, dear Bridegroom,
'til you come, Lord, how soon?
Don't delay for that coming day, coming day.
Grant me Lord, to be filled
with You, Lord, every day.
Dearest Lord, take me all the way.

Chorus:
Come, Lord Jesus,
please come, dear Bridegroom!
Precious One, come soon, come soon.
Lord, consume me!
Oh Lord, don't let me stray,
faithful to You all the way.

Lord, make home in all my heart
in my secret, deepest parts.
Hidden, Lord, and reserved for You.
You would be preeminent
in all things and all events
possessed by Thee to that extent

In my prayer and deepest plea,
in my spirit always be
saturated and soaked with Thee.
This would be my life daily
every hour expecting Thee
this I pray, Lord, desperately!

The universe, in it we see,
in the sweetest touch of Thee,
You're my choice and my destiny.
Lord, whate'er the price may be
Lord, Amen, let it be!
Oh, my Love, please come back quickly!

In Your love I am constrained.
What's within, I can't contain.
Lord I can't any more restrain.
In Your love, I'll pour on Thee
and the church, Your Bride to be,
this my choice voluntarily.
