So much can be said about this incredible hymn by F. Allaben, but I will let you soak it all in without commentary. I will say this, though: we serve a God who not only is Love, but radically redefines the love that our culture holds to.

Life: Life of Love Poured Out listen | learn
Life: life of Love poured out, fragrant and holy!
Life: ‘mid rude thorns of earth, stainless and sweet!
Life: whence God’s face of love, glorious, but lowly,
Shines forth to bow us, low at Thy feet!
Grief: grief of Love, that drew hate’s every arrow!
Grief: that Thy suffering heart only could meet.
Grief: whence Thy face of love, shining in sorrow,
Draws us, adoring, low at Thy feet!
Death: death of stricken Love, wrath’s sea exploring!
Death: Life’s mysterious death — deep meeting deep;
Death: whence Thy bursting heart fills ours, outpouring
All, Lord, in worship, low at Thy feet!
