"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love." (1 John 4:18)
We’re all searching for something true.
Surrounded by fake news, extreme views, everyone’s confused,
But I’ve seen that love is stronger than fear, haven’t you?
Sometimes it feels like there’s nothing we can do,
We don’t know who to trust, systems are being abused –
It can be lonely when you’re searching for something true.
We long for hope, we long for something new,
We long for that bitter mountain to be moved,
Yet I’ve seen that love is stronger than despair, haven’t you?
Society seems to be in crisis, and perhaps our hearts are too,
But there’s a different perspective you can choose
When you’re searching for something true:
If you peer behind a veil that’s been torn in two
You’ll see the promise of a world renewed –
I’ve seen that love is stronger than hate, haven’t you?
Maybe that’s not enough. Maybe we need another clue.
Maybe there are some things that will never be proved.
Yet we’re all searching for something true,
And I’ve seen that love is stronger than death, haven’t you?
Happy Resurrection Day, and God bless you.
