A Song: “Nothing Without Love”


Nothing Without Love

 

Oh My dove, My darling
oh, My beauty-
Oh Jerusalem
You take your pride in what
you claim to know and then
you hate and stone the messengers
I send
.
{chorus 1}
And you say,
You say you want to know Me,
That you want to see My face,
That you want to know My Glory-
but you don’t understand
that glory is not something to be had…
Besides, glory
is nothing without Love-
You know it’s nothing
Without love
.
How, how many
times
I’ve sat upon
this mount and cried
…you know I cry for you-
And now I give Myself
into your hands and how
you beat Me…
Spit in my face and hate Me,
Oh My Love
.
{chorus 2}
And then you say,
You say you want to know Me
That you want to see My face,
That you want to see My Glory–
You don’t recognize My face,
You can’t understand a King
Who would come down from above-
but you know,
Glory
is nothing without Love-
you know it’s nothing
without…
.
We are two… two Lovers
Separated-
Now the war is on-
And I have come tonight
To make a way for us,
To break the power of all that’s been
keeping us apart
.
{chorus 3}
Now if you say,
You say you want to know Me,
That you want to see My face-
Do you want to know My Glory?-
then come join Me in this place
Where love pours out Its Blood into the ground;
Cause when you’ve lost your life, Then baby–
You are found.
.
{Bridge}
Now you know I’d do anything for love
Nothing’s going to keep Me from you, Love
Now you know I’d do anything just to be with You,-
You can do it too, oh, come on…..
.
You can climb the high mountain, You can cross the sea
with Me…
.
Nothing will be tearing us apart
Now I promise, oh My heart
.
{chorus 4}
That now when you say,
You say you want to know Me-
that you want to see My face
You know you’re going to see My Glory–
cause now you understand
That glory is not something to be had,
Because Glory is nothing without Love,-
You know it’s nothing
without Love.
