"Beloved" as written by and Mike Donehey....
Love of my life
Deep in my eyes
There you will find what you need
Give me your life
Lust and the lies
The past you're afraid I might see
You've been running away from me

You're my beloved
Lover I'm yours
Death shall not part us
It's you I died for
For better or worse
Forever we'll be
My love it unites us
And it binds you to me
It's a mystery

Love of my life
Deep in my eyes
There you will find what you need
I'm the giver of life
I'll clothe you in white
My immaculate bride you will be
Oh come running home to me

You're my beloved
Lover I'm yours
Death shall not part us
It's you I died for
For better or worse
Forever we'll be
My love it unites us
It binds you to me

Now you've been a mistress, my wife
You're chasing lovers it won't satisfy
Won't you let me make you my bride
You will drink of my lips
And you'll taste new life

You're my beloved
Lover I'm yours
Death shall not part us
It's you I died for
For better or worse
Forever we'll be
Our love it unites us
And it binds you to me
It's a mystery

    General CommentSuch a beautiful song... from Christ's perspective, talking to us, the church, His beloved.

    General CommentI was certain this song was a song from Christ's perspective, but then I heard the acoustic version, and my opinion changed. The acoustic version adds the line at the very end "That you'd love someone like me, it's a mystery". That doesn't seem like a line that would come from Jesus, but more like what a humble and loving spouse would say. I could be wrong about that, but the acoustic version seems a bit more like a wedding song, whereas the original verison is certainly a spiritual song. That's my interpretation anyway.

    My OpinionI think it's got to be a song with Christ speaking to the Church or to an individual because of the line "it's you i died for" among a few other lines which make it seem like it cannot be a spouse talking to their spouse.

    General Commenti believe this song is supposed to be from one spouse to another but if the love is in its truest form, it should mirror Gods love, so it can be seen both ways.

    General CommentI am taking this as a song to a person you are in love with, with the lyric "It's you I died for" I was baptized into the same faith as my husband-I died for him and was reborn. In the accoustic version it sometimes sounds like he is saying "It's you I'd die for". Afraid of the past he might see, God sees our past there is no hiding. Well this is my thought on it anyway, the great things about songs is everyone will interpret them differentlym, it makes us all unique and individual. Have a great day!
