The First Time

Okay, so this is probably “cheating” in the blogger world, but once you read it you’ll understand why I had to post them.  These are the lyrics to MercyMe’s new song, “The First Time”.  (For those of you who may not know this about me, they are my MOST FAVORITE BAND of all time – even more than a big-hair band from the 80’s!)  Today’s post is dedicated to my ‘ohana group. I love you guys!

(There are also a couple links below: one for a youtube video, so you can listen to the song with lyrics and another about the band’s journey in putting their album, The Hurt and The Healer, together.)

The First Time

Day after day, I try to explain you, like I contain you in so many words
You are the ocean, I’m on the shoreline, thinking I know you like you could
Be learned
It’s so amazing, that you’d ever save me
I thought I knew your face, I thought I tasted grace
But I have never felt anything close to this.
Just when I’d seen it all, new mercy breaks the door.
With eyes open wide, it feels like the first time, first time. it feels
Like the first time, first time.
After all of my searching, all of my reaching, I’m left with nothing,
Nothing of worth.
You treasure the broken, over and over, and give me a hope that can never
Be earned.
It’s still amazing, that you’d ever save me.
I thought I knew your face, I thought I tasted grace
But I have never felt anything close to this.
Just when I’d seen it all, new mercy breaks the door.
With eyes open wide, it feels like the first time, first time. it feels
Like the first time, first time.
Your beauty, no eyes see. your majesty, your worthy. your love for me, is
Healing, your god.
I thought I knew your face, I thought I tasted grace
But it was nothing like this.
Just when I’d seen it all, new mercy breaks the door.
With eyes open wide, I feel life for the first time, first time. it feels
Like the first time, first time.

Dear Father,

I am forever in awe of You.  Thank You for saving me, and showing new mercy every morning, and the moments that remind me of the first time I met You.
Amen
