lyrics

Love Does Not Bargain

The Lord opened a door before me, showing me His way
I paused and asked if I might take that step another day
The Lord responded with a silence, nothing more to say
And then I knew His silence meant "obey"

A day came when my happiness on earth was in decay
My Lord said you must leave these things at once, without delay
I looked over those things and asked, "Is there another way?"
He shook His head and said to me "obey"

Love does not bargain, or enter into deals
But bares Her arm before us, and Her way reveals
The sacrifice that God requires is a willing heart
And though we know not where He leads, a willingness to start

Men may imagine that there is another way
To cast off these burdens which so heavy on us weigh
But every other path leads to darkness and dismay
The way to freedom is to obey

In my heart of hearts I approach God when I pray
Adoring His beauty and longing to repay
But I have no money and there's nothing I can say
The currency I have is to obey

Love does not bargain, or enter into deals
But bares Her arm before us, and Her way reveals
The sacrifice that God requires is a willing heart
And though we know not where He leads, a willingness to start

Upon this blushing path we feel each footstep sing
Our sin forgot and in its place a pair of newborn wings
Our God's demands are more than laws carved in stone or wood
His heart is that we be like Him, and He is only good.
