Receive Love

Ive heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the lord
But you dont really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing hallelujah

Your faith was strong, but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

Baby Ive been here before, I know this room
Ive walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
Ive seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
Its a cold and its a broken hallelujah

There was a time you let me know
Whats really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
I remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Maybe theres a God above, all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who out drew you
And its not a cry you can hear at night
Its not somebody whos seen the light
Its a cold and its a broken hallelujah

1 John 4:7-12
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
