| how He loves


Just wanna share a beautiful song with ya'll.

I first heard of it in David Crowder*Band's (apparently the '*' asterisk is part of the band name) latest album, Church Music. Its lyrics were very down to earth and connected with me, so I did a little more digging and found out that it was written by a guy named John Mark McMillan following a death of his friend, Stephen who, during a church staff meeting, prayed out loud "If it would shake the youth of a nation, I will give my life today". John was awoken in the middle of that very night by a phone call. His friend, who had mentioned those words during his church's staff meeting earlier that day, was killed in a car crash.





John Mark McMillan
How He Loves


He is jealous for me
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy
When all of a sudden
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory
And I realise just how beautiful You are
And how great Your affections are for me

And oh, how He loves us so
Oh how He loves us
How He loves us all


We are His portion and He is our prize
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking
So Heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets
When I think about, the way…

And oh, how He loves us so
Oh how He loves us
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us
Whoa! how He loves us
Whoa! how He loves us
Oh how He loves


Well, I thought about You the day Stephen died
And You met me between my breaking
I know that I still love You, God, despite the agony
They want to tell me You're cruel
But if Stephen could sing, he'd say it's not true, cause

Cause He loves us
Whoa! how He loves us
Whoa! how He loves us
Whoa! how He loves






Beautiful song eh? Well, here's David Crowder's version which is almost the same minus the last verse about Stephen. Youtube won't allow us Malaysians to view the video so this one's from Yahoo Music Videos. Enjoy and be blessed







p.s. mid term at 2pm.. wish me luck and remember that He loves us
