You know I've got a lot to say and a little time to say it
'Cause everybody thinks you've got a 3-minute attention span
Been up all night, trying to condense the story
From pre-time-existing splendor to post-revolution glory
See the earth's creation ain't the program to this drama
Long before Mohammad, Krishna, Buddha, Baba, Dalai Lama
Was 3 Persons in a Trinity, to content to be
Basking in the Love of One Another, reveling Unity
He never had a need, but He longed to have a Bride
A perfectly-yoked partner, someone He could fully let inside

There were two trees in the garden without slightest correlation
We chose good and evil over Life, that was our perpetration
And for those who think the Lord was startled by our situation
Must recall the Lamb was slain before the earth had its foundation
He didn't trip at that gross miscalculation
The beat goes on with a syncopation
For thousands of years He pointed to the One a-comin
And when the time came, overjoyed He came a-runnin for you
He hit the ground runnin for you

And I wonder, "Who coulda loved me
Even Close to how You do
No greater love has this, than a man would lay down his life for his friend

And take what he's due."
And I wonder, "How can I show You, all the gratitude inside
Maybe just to care to prepare the fair one to make herself ready to be Your Bride
Maybe just to care to prepare the fair one to make herself ready to be Your Bride

Then He came here and He gave Himself away
The people liked Him first, but they changed when they began
To understand the things that He would say
He said, "Your life's not good enough, is it?
Why now take a change and just lay it down.
You know I want to come for more than a visit.
The plan has always been for me to stick around... around in you
Make my life abound in you"

He did more than just concede
No, He pleaded and pleaded
To take the things that I did, they did, he did, she did, and we did
And how we needed Him to save us from the terrors of hell
And it was freedom that He gave us from the jail-cell called self-
Consciousness, common sense tells you where your confidence in providence lies
You want to stake your claim in that domain
Of the One who came to claim your blame and shame
And to remain in the Slain Who overcame pain
And to proclaim the fame of Jesus name
And to remain in the Slain Who overcame
pain
And to proclaim the fame of Jesus name

And I wonder, "Who coulda loved me
Even Close to how You do
No greater love has this, than a man would lay down his life for his friend

And take what he's due."
And I wonder, "How can I show You, all the gratitude inside
Maybe just to care to prepare the fair one to make herself ready to be Your Bride
Maybe just to care to prepare the fair one to make herself ready to be Your Bride
