Before all creation was spoken
Into its existence,
The Spirit of God was hovering close,
No longer any distance.
In anticipation God spoke,
To the deepest deeps,
Where darkness dwelled violently
And suddenly my heart within me leaps!
For I feel His presence coming close
To meet me where I lay
Tied down by sins mired roots,
Kiss me, Lord I pray!
Welcome me with tender arms, Dear God
Hold me fast, Keep me close,
Help me not to stray.
I know with full assurance
What this all could mean,
It’s the sound of Heaven kissing us
Our Truest joy bursting on the scene!
With the light spoken from the darkness
A picture of His birth,
His love does what the law could never do,
Show us our Greatest Worth.
Kisses from Heaven’s gracious Father
Healing every wound
The lips of our God meet us
Giving hope we never knew.
Where sin and guilt remain
The blood of Jesus pleads
The kisses of my God
Meet all my desperate needs.
So thank you, Oh my Father!
For giving us Your Son,
And kissing each of us with Your grace,
Loving us all, every single one.
“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth! For your love is better than wine; your anointing oils are fragrant; your name is oil poured out; therefore virgins love you. Draw me after you; let us run.The king has brought me into his chambers.”
– Song of Solomon 1:2-4
