THE SCALES OF LOVE (Song Lyrics)

Environmental Scale
Chorus
The more I love Jesus
The more I am able to lift
My loved ones to safety
To be filled with heaven’s sweet gift

Oh! Hear me Lord
Please hear my plea
I draw closer
Yet I am tied

I feel the need
To be with them
And yet I can’t
I’m in the way

My heart, it aches
As it watches and
Sees them hurting
The silent tears

There’s so much pain
Hid deep within
And kept captive
By chains so dark

Lord, please draw me
Into Love’s depth
Hold me so close
Shelter, protect

Each breath is hard
When love is torn
Love wants to tell
Everything’s fine

Chorus
The more I love Jesus
The more I am able to lift
My loved ones to safety
To be filled with heaven’s sweet gift

Imagine scales
I’m on one end
They, the other
What will happen?

I thought that if
I filled my life
Every part of me
With Father’s love

Embracing all
His Word could be
The scales would lift
Me heavenward

Yes, so lovely
The other end
Though, would lower
Away from Him

But, no. It won’t
The more I love
And worship Him
The scales tilt

I am humbled
Lowered, and
My loved ones are
Lifted closer

Closer to Him
So I must leave
My loved ones to
Jesus, not me

Bridge
The more I love Him
The more I lift
My loved ones to Him
Their hearts to sift

Chorus
The more I love Jesus
The more I am able to lift
My loved ones to safety
To be filled with heaven’s sweet gift
