When I hear this myriad of voices, judging others and casting stones
I feel a need, an ugly urge, to add to it my own
But as each person opens their smooth and slicing mouth
We see a heart’s hidden agenda silently pour out
Even those who say we love God and His word and ways
We tend to seek our own and do not speak with Love’s pure grace

But if I am to actually make a real change
The thing I must change is how I see each one’s face
If I look in your eyes and see division and doom
The thing I am missing is real love for you
Because this I know to be completely true:
If He came for me, He came for you, too

And if He came for you, His heart is ablaze
With a jealousy much stronger than rage
You see, you are His beloved, a child formed from His hands
Whether you believe it or not, His love for you stands

He’s jealous for you like a groom for his bride
As a serpent deceives her to run from His side
Will I choose to forget that you are His own
That you were created for love, to be known?
There is a piece of His heart locked just inside yours
And you look just like Him, though you’ve never been told

He made His own breath to be the air in your lungs
You were made in His image, a daughter, a son
So I will not judge, not the branch, nor the fruit
I’m not the Gardner who knows just what to do

The reason I say this is because I was that girl
I was caught in my sin, brought before the whole world
At least that’s what it felt like, and He saw me too
But He knelt and found mercy in the words He would use

Truth from the Father can turn hate into love
And the Word spoken rightly can turn hearts just enough
So please, if you hear me, life is hard as it is
Let’s soften the blows it continues to give
Let’s seek revelation, not to know, but to grow
Let’s be quick to listen, to learn, to let go

On the ground where He saved me, I caught hold of one thing
All my days, I am to show mercy, just like my kind King
