Our Lover

This is a song I wrote back in 2000. It actually came after having a very shameful dream. I woke up and found myself before the Lord needing to be covered and in the intimacy, vulnerability and safety of that moment with him this song flowed out. It has been a while since I have sung it at church but recently Jason Dorsey has been preaching on what Godly sexuality is and it felt appropriate to sing it again. I wanted to bring a slightly different musical mood to the song so I so that I might own it freshly so I remixed it a little and put it in a different key to force the melody into a slightly different space.

Our Lover      (listen)    (chords)

O my God, lead me to a rainbow,
O my God, your sunlight through dark rains,
O my God, tell me of your promise,
O my God, I will not be afraid.

For you O God, rescued us from danger,
     For you O God, let us your sweetness taste,
     For you O God, have led us like a lover,
     And O my God, I will seek your face

O my God, lead me to the river,
O my God, wash away the stains,
O my God, fill my heart with music,
O my God, before you I will play.

 For you O God, I will sing with trembling,
     For you O God, close to your fearful strength,
     For you O God, have called me to your presence,
     And O my God, I will know your Name.

O my God, you lift me like a bridegroom,
O my God, hide me in your train,
O my God, hold me close forever,
O my God, cover up my shame

For you O God, took off all your glory,
     For you O God, to clothe me in your grace,
     For you O God, with tender hands you heal me,
     And O my God, I on your beauty gaze
