Chase Me

I’ve loved this song for ages and ages, ever since I came across it and used it in a small group Bible study. I like that it gets to the heart of sin in a different way to how we so often talk about it – and it helps me see what a tragedy it is that we don’t see Jesus for who he is.

I always had a heart for you and a mind for more of me
You gave me all the world to use and I found the one forbidden tree
Oh the naked day I ran away to take care of myself
To all my life be ruled by my escape, to faint under some spell

So you would chase me down through the centuries
Remembering the garden when you asked me where I was
Then you came to face me but I didn’t really see you

You always had a heart for me that I mistrusted from my birth
And you trying to get close to me has marked the history of earth
Round a table we, 12 men and a deity drinking wine together just like brothers
We were vying for the right hand of your royal court
And you looked like the world was going under
Oh the night I naked fled away and left you by yourself
You went on to pay for my escape and shake me from this spell

So you would chase me down through the centuries
Remembering the garden when you asked me where I was
Then you came to face me but I didn’t really see you

You hung naked on that darkened day and brought me to yourself while I was
Swearing there was some mistake – I didn’t know you well
