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 · It was love - And get nailed to the form of a lower case "t" · · Verse 1: To all my listeners you’re on my "got to get with you list" · Scripture gives the run down, come now you’ve got to picture this · The 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 play pen, 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 veins, 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. · · | Repeat Chorus | · · 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 till rested · I guess love will always be theory till 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 tree about this one tree · He said if you eat the fruit then you’re saying you don’t want me · In other words you’re saying, "Bye", 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, and on went the pattern · The earth got cursed on the day they dissed Jehovah · He said, "I told ya, now our relationship is over!" · · | Repeat Chorus | · · 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 make 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 holiest · Questioning the infinite wisdom and the justice of the lowliest · 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 · Doom to hang on a cross cause we’re His lost love · Resurrected just to get with you if you get your cue · From Scripture you can see He clearly preplanned 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 in reply to · His proposal, "Will you marry Me?"---we say, "I do!" · · · Ending Chorus · · Love - made Him bleed and cling to a tree · It was love - unlike this word 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.
