CHORUS: It was love – What made Him bleed and cling to a tree • It was love – Unlike this world has ever seen before • It was love – What made Him bleed and cling to a tree • And get nailed to the form of a lower case “T”
VERSE 1: To all my listeners: you’re on my gots to get with ya list • Scripture gives the run down, come now you’ve got to picture this • An evolutionist would call this ridiculous • Story of a love, a true love that got promiscuous • The true lover was a King they called Elohim • Dig it, He was exquisite, always existed • For designer clothes, He sported Shekinah robes • The kind that glows, baggy, you know the kind that flows • He was awesome, majestic, flawless • Perfect with all this, you might ask, what could be next His outcry zoomed throughout the counsel of the Triune • Crank the volume, when God speaks it’s a fly tune • Let Us make man in Our likeness and Our image • He sparked it, even before He started He was finished • And since it’s, a fact that every kid needs a nursery • Before He made man, He made a universe—a world to be • A playpen, you know a place to chill, one to play in • Fields to lay in, earth to rule, one to stay in • He took dust in His hands, made a man • Breathed life into his frame, said, Adam is your name • It was all fun and games, no pain and no strain • He named all the animals, they were pre-tamed • Man and his God chillin’ like jello with • Nothing to undermine the divine fellowship • Love
VERSE 2: Curtain please, scene two, we see the surgery • Adam de-ribbed, now Eve lives, we see with certainty • God wanted the earth to be, full so earth can see • God and glory go together like thermometers and mercury • Intertwined, Elohim was man’s date • But it’s a thin line, between love and hate • And just like a person will be weary ’til rested • I guess love will always be theory ’til tested • So check it, God put this tree off limits • He can do that, the earth is the Lord’s and all that’s in it • He meant it, He told Adam the truth about the one tree • He said if you eat the fruit, then you’re saying you don’t want Me • In other words you’re saying, Why, I wouldn’t lie • Cause the day you eat from this tree you’re surely gonna die • Why in God’s name couldn’t Adam maintain • No blame, if it was us we would have probably done the same thing • Satan tricked Eve, Eve gave to Adam • Sin had them, death grabbed them, on went the pattern • The earth got cursed on the day they dissed Jehovah • He said, I told ya, now our relationship is over!
VERSE 3: It really gets to me, it really is a mystery • Why with foresight, God even let us ruin history • But the love story gets deeper • Holiness makes Him hide from sin, but His Love for men made Him a seeker • My heart is getting weaker, it’s burnin’ me bad • I earnestly ask, why in eternity past • Did the Godhead agree that they would let man leave • Knowing the penalty—that they’d have to let man bleed • But this is just a case of the lowliest • Questioning the infinite wisdom and the justice of the Holiest • God’s omnipotent and sovereign—Yes I know He is • And He’s gracious and merciful—The Bible told me this • Took a human frame, Jesus was His human name • Doomed to hang on a cross cause, we’re His lost love • Resurrected just to get with you, if you catch a cue from Scripture you can see He clearly pre-planned the switch-a-roo • He’d always planned to become a Man, die as a substitute Lamb / Start a new fam, of humans, who can • Take the Son’s hand and reply to • His proposal, Will you marry Me?—We say, I do!
OUTRO CHORUS: Love – made Him bleed and cling to a tree • It was love – unlike this world has ever seen before • It was love – that made Him bleed and cling to a tree • Nailed just for you and nailed just for me • It was love – that made Him bleed and cling to a tree • It was love – unlike this world has ever seen before • It was love – that made Him bleed and cling to a tree • He was nailed just for you and nailed just for me
