"Gomer's Theme" as written by Johnny Mac Powell, Samuel Tai Anderson, Bradley B. C. Avery, David Carr and Mark D. Lee....
In this place
Saw her face
He was more than happier
Made for Him
It's a sin
That she was not faithful

She couldn't be Foolishly
More unfaithful if she tried
He did not care
Wanted her
despite lies and wandering eyes
He deserves the very best
But He loves her none the less

She's forgetten her first love
( Maybe someday she'll return )
He's forgotten that she ever went away
And broke his heart

Lacished on
Silver, gold, anything she needed
Wasted thoughts
Broken hearts
Love was not acknowledged
God only knows
That He has shown her
More love than she deserves

There will come a time
When she will find
That He's not there to give her love
And He'll be gone away
From her forever

    General CommentThis song is about a story in the Old Testament book of Hosea. Gomer was Hosea's wife. She had been a prostitute and God told Hosea to go take Gomer as his wife, so Hosea was obedient and did that. After a while, Gomer left him and went back to being a prostitute. God told Hosea to go get his wife and tell her that she was to live with him. He went and bought her and she came to live with him then.
    I think this is a very good picture of what Jesus did for us. Our sin is just as ugly and disgusting as that of this prostitute when compared with God's righteousness. nevertheless, God sent Jesus to save us. And we killed Him. Yet he continues to love us, even when we turn away from him and go right back to committing the very sins that He died for. He still loves us anyway and comes back for us and tells us that we aren't to sin anymore, but are to follow Him.

    General CommentGood explanation Mabes. The story is found in Hosea 1-3. This is definately Third Day's best song. The solo at the end is awesome.
