lyrics

Wayward Bride
(from Ezekiel 16)
Written by Rachel Wilhelm;

Placed in your heart, the stone and the carved image
I gave all you want, but you turn, a soul imprisoned
I drew you from the open field,
Where you were cast and abhorred
My garment, from the cold, a shield,
Your body, full, adorned

Chorus:
I will stretch out My hand
I will give to the fire
I will lay all bare
As you climb in the mire

How love-sick your heart, you built yourself a vaulted chamber
Your beauty mirrored death, to run to another savior
O twisted love, oh how you’ve strayed
Affections, turned, a lofty place,
Wayward bride, this price the grave
Oh how will it be paid?

Chorus:
When I will stretch out My hand
I will give to the fire
I will lay all bare
As you climb in the mire

I’ll bring you back to Me,
My vow sure, My love still true
And all will see your shame,
But I will be atonement for you
