Come let me love you

You fill up my senses like a night in the forest,
like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain,
like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean.
You fill up my senses, come fill me again.

Come let me love you, let me give my life to you,
let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms,
let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you.
Come let me love you, come love me again.
Annie's Song, John Denver (1974)

I woke up this morning with this beautiful song in my head. If you didn't know that it was a song John Denver wrote about his love for his wife, you might think it was a worship song about your love for The Lord or His love for you. This is one of the most honest love songs I know of. Very pure.

Background on the song's inception from Wikipedia:
Annie's Song is a song recorded and written by singer/songwriter John Denver. It was his second number one in the USA, occupying that spot for two weeks in July 1974. It also went to number one in the UK. "Annie's Song" was written as an ode to Denver's then-wife, Annie Denver (Annie Martel). The two had started to come apart following his sudden success, and had separated when he took a trip to Switzerland. While on a ski lift by himself, Denver started to marvel the beauty around, and, thinking about his wife back at home, penned the song in a few minutes. The song has since become a wedding standard and an expression of love for many people, due to its grand imagery and the fact it could apply to anyone (Annie is not mentioned by name in any part of the song).

My thought is that mercy is God's last word (Karl Barth). Many people are outside the church and most of them are hurting. But the church, as it has existed, has actually blocked the light rather than shedding it. Many people are in the place of "Jesus- yes!", but "Church-no!"; because the so-called-church has not been congruent with Jesus Christ. This must change and I believe it is.
