Love Is Here by Tenth Avenue North

This song has such a great way of explaining the gospel. We have all thirsted. We have all labored in vain. We have all searched for a treasure that will last. And we have all wanted for love. In all that wanting we have all chosen things that don’t satisfy.

About ten years ago I found the water that quenches thirst. I found the Father that relieves my burdens. I found the treasure that gives me true joy. I found the lover that satisfies the longing that nothing or no one on this earth can satisfy. His name is Jesus and He died so that I might live. He died so that you might live.

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:8

Come to the water
You who thirst
And you’ll thirst no more
Come to the father
You who work
And you’ll work no more
And all you who labor in vain
And to the broken and shamed

Love is here
Love is now
Love is pouring from His hands
From His brow
Love is near
It satisfies
Streams of mercy flowing from His side

‘Cause love is here

Come to the treasure
You who search
And you’ll search no more
Come to the lover
You who want
And you’ll want no more
And all you who labor in vain
And to the broken and shamed

And to the bruised and fallen captives bound and broken hearted
He is the Lord
He is the Lord
By his stripes
He’s paid our ransom
From His wounds we drink salvation
He is the Lord
He is the Lord
