Saturday Song: The Church (Derek Webb)

I have come with one purpose
To capture for myself a bride
By my life she is lovely
By my death she’s justified


I have always been her husband
Though many lovers she has known
So with water i will wash her
And by my word alone
So when you hear the sound of the water
You will know you’re not alone

Cause i haven’t come for only you
But for my people to pursue
You cannot care for me with no regard for her
If you love me you will love the church


I have long pursued her
As a harlot and a whore
But she will feast upon me
She will drink and thirst no more
So when you taste my flesh and my blood
You will know you’re not alone

Cause i haven’t come for only you
But for my people …


There is none that can replace her
Though there are many who will try
And though some may be her bridesmaids
They can never be my bride
