The Lover Of Your Soul Sings Over You

Here’s the thing, just as money can’t buy happiness, having a love in your life doesn’t guarantee you will feel loved.

It just doesn’t.

There is only One who loves perfectly. No other love will satisfy. Not fully. Not forever. The whole “you complete me” bit? It’s only gonna be found in one place, and that’s God.

He is your bridegroom, singing over his Beloved.

I adore this song by Kari Jobe. It’s a prayer, one that the Lover of your soul sings for you throughout Scripture.

Listen to it and read the lyrics below. There are verses embedded throughout this song, some of which I’ve listed by each line. If you mouse over them, you’ll see the phrases that are echoing throughout the Bible – a love song for you.

Soak in this prayer by your Bridegroom:

You’re My Beloved – Romans 9:25-26
You’re My Bride – Isaiah 62:4-5
To sing over you is My delight – Zephaniah 3:17
Come away with Me My love – Song of Solomon 2:13

Under My mercy – Psalm 119:77
Come and wait – Psalm 62:1-2
Till we are standing face to face – I Corinthians 13:12
I see no stain on you – Psalm 51:1-2, Psalm 51:10
My child – Romans 8:14-16, Galatians 4:5-7

You’re Beautiful to Me – Song of Solomon 2:10
So Beautiful to Me – Song of Solomon 1:15, Isaiah 60:9

I sing over you My song of peace – Isaiah 26:3, Philippians 4:7
Cast all your care down at My feet – I Peter 5:7
Come and find your rest in Me – Matthew 11:28-30

I’ll breathe My life inside of you – Genesis 2:7, John 20:21-22
I’ll bear you up on eagle’s wings – Isaiah 40:31
And hide you in the shadow of My strength – Psalm 91:1
I’ll take you to My quiet waters
I’ll restore your soul – Psalm 23:1-3
Come rest in Me and be made whole – Psalm 116:7, Isaiah 30:15

You’re My Beloved
You’re My Bride
To sing over you is my delight
Come away with me my love

Happy Valentine’s Day, dear Friend. You are so deeply loved by God.
