lyrics

The Love That Would Not Die

There’s no turning off that sweet burning heart of yours
I know, the fire’s lit for good
You really love me
And all these hearts all around me
Are singing parts in the harmony

You are my love and I can no longer doubt
You are the fire that would not be put out
A gentle touch to take away my hurt
A little child tugging at my shirt

I can't believe you keep coming back, like the morning sun
My love, you always were my love
And now I know you weren’t faking
'Cause when my heart was empty, aching
You filled it up, making
Everything warm with your flame
My love, it’s all because of you

Returning leaves, emerging from a bud
You are the flower of the Saviour’s precious blood
A golden phoenix riding on the sky
A glowing fire, the love that would not die
