WHEN LOVE OVERWHELMS (Song Lyrics)

Valentine’s Day Rose Love Background
Chorus
When love
When love
When love
It overwhelms
To the point of feeling so embraced
Nothing else matters
And never will

Knowing that He loves me
Knowing that He cares
Knowing that wherever He leads me
I’m on the path He’s travelled for me
For me
I’m on the path He’s travelled for me

And nothing I can say or do
Will make Him love me any more
Than He already does

I hear Him calling my name
Sweet child
I love you

Bridge
When His love overwhelms me
And peace settles deep within
It’s like falling upon a bed of roses
Where healing fragrance silently infuses in

The softness of morning
The stillness of eve
Through every waking moment forming
Love entwined with each new dawning
Dawning
Love entwined with each new dawning

And nothing I can say or do
Will make Him love me any more
Than He already does

He’s calling my name again
Sweet child
I love you

Chorus
When love
When love
When love
It overwhelms
To the point of feeling so embraced
Nothing else matters
And never will

And nothing I can say or do
Will make Him love me any more
Than He already does
And as hard as I try
I cannot describe
The depths of my Father’s love
Being cherished and adored by Love
Cherished
Embraced
Cherished
Embraced
Cherished in the arms of Love
Of Love
Cherished in the arms of Love

Lord, it’s me
Sweet child
Here I am
Ready to receive Your love
And fall deeper in love with You
So much deeper in love with You

YOU’VE MADE MY LIFE INTO A TAPESTRY OF GOLD (Song Lyrics)

gold footpath

Chorus
You’ve made my life into a tapestry of gold
You’ve made my days so new and banished days of old
You’ve taken everything from me I didn’t hold
And brought me into Your sweet and eternal fold

Before I was known in earth
Before the world began
You loved me, cherished me
For me had an awesome plan

And then Love, You hand-stitched me
Placed all intricately
Blew on my finished frame
New life in my family tree

Chorus
You’ve made my life into a tapestry of gold
You’ve made my days so new and banished days of old
You’ve taken everything from me I didn’t hold
And brought me into Your sweet and eternal fold

All was well in innocence
Then I started changing
Wanting things my own way
Undoing Your arranging

Every little stitch that I
Tried to call my own, it
Undid each stitch You wove
And my life, no longer fit

Chorus
You’ve made my life into a tapestry of gold
You’ve made my days so new and banished days of old
You’ve taken everything from me I didn’t hold
And brought me into Your sweet and eternal fold

I realized I was wrong
This tapestry, now dull
No more stitches of gold
Just old and drab and null

And so I cried to the Lord
I’m sorry, please rescue me
Sew threads of heaven’s love
And may gold again I see

Bridge
Unfold my life dear Lord
Unfold it till it glows
Glows with all of heaven’s light
And joy forever flows

Chorus
You’ve made my life into a tapestry of gold
You’ve made my days so new and banished days of old
You’ve taken everything from me I didn’t hold
And brought me into Your sweet and eternal fold
