"Long before he laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love, to be made whole and holy by his love.." (Ephesians 1:4 The Message Version)
Long before the world was made,
before a heart felt prayer was prayed,
You called me
Long before I breathed the air, before I clutched a single care
You saw my way
Long before my cheeks got red, over something a little boy had said
You cherished me
Long before I thought of you or reasoned my existence through
You knew me
Now I need to know... I need to know...You
Long before I had to face adulthood in this tangled place
You pleaded in a garden
Long before I turned inside, before I hardened up with pride.
They nailed you down.
Long before I felt the shame, before I found a world to blame
You forgave them.
Long before my time had come, before the things I’ve said and done
They sealed your tomb
And now I need to know...I need to know, Now I need to know…you
You rose again and conquered death
All before I took a breath
Now I need to know...I need to know, Now I need to know…you...you...you...
