Lord of Love

Upset the tables in our hearts
Drive out all foul ’till it departs
So cleanse Your temple Lord of Love
And fill our hearts with things above

Replace all lies with what is true
Remove all that distracts from You
The things we do the way we pray
Come now and have the final say

Our lives are filled with worldly stuff
And interest in all kinds of fluff
We have indulged our wants and self
Left You our Lord upon the shelf

In Revelation two and three
Your call goes out that all might see
Else we be lost and ever mourn
Your Word brings counsel and You warn

Come buy pure gold that comes from You
Refined by fire – pure and true
Your cleansing that reveals to us
All that can but decay and rust

Come buy white clothes to cover blame
And nakedness in sin and shame
Repentance buys Salvation’s life
Clothed in the righteousness of Christ

Your salve we need for eyes so blind
We do not see the ties that bind
With truth you’ll open eyes to see
And sanctify and set us free

Our Lord of Love You stand today
You’re knocking – calling to Your Way
And if we hear – the door release
With You we’ll dine and dwell in peace

“I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.

Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent. Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.”
– Revelation 3:18-20
