"The Church" as written by and Derek W. Webb....
I have come with one purpose
To capture for myself a bride
By my life she is lovely
And by my death she's justified

I have always been her husband
Though many lovers she has known
So with water I will wash her
Oh and by my word alone

So when you hear
The sound of the water
You will know
That you're not alone

Cause I havn't come for only you
But for My people to pursue
You can not care for Me with no regard for her
If you love Me, you will love the church

Oh and I have long pursued her
As a harlot and a whore
Yes, but she will feast upon me
She will drink and thirst no more

So when you taste
My flesh and my blood
You will know
That you're not alone

Cause I havn't come for only you
But for My people to pursue
You can not care for Me with no regard for her
If you love Me, you will love the church

There is none who can replace her
There are many who will try
And though some may be her bridesmaids
They can never be My bride
(Oh no)

Cause I havn't come for only you
But for My people to pursue
You can not care for Me with no regard for her
If you love Me, you will love the church
