Misty Edwards - Arms Wide Open lyrics

"What does love look like?" is the question I've been pondering "What does love look like?" "What does love look like?" is the question I've been asking of You I once believed that love was romance, just a chance I even thought that love was for the lucky and the beautiful I once believed that love was a momentary bliss But love is more than this All You ever wanted was my attention All You ever wanted was love from me All You ever wanted was my affections, to sit here at Your feet Then tell me "What does love look like?" is the question I've been pondering "What does love look like?" Then I sat down, a little frustrated and confused If all of life comes down to love Then love has to be more than sentiment More than selfishness and selfish gain And then I saw Him there, hanging on a tree, looking at me I saw Him there, hanging on a tree, looking at me He was looking at me, looking at Him, staring through me I could not escape those beautiful eyes And I began to weep and weep He had arms wide open, a heart exposed Arms wide open; He was bleeding, bleeding Love's definition, love's definition was looking at me Looking at Him, hanging on a tree I began to weep and weep and weep and weep This is how I know what love is, this is how I know what love is And as I sat there weeping, crying Those beautiful eyes, full of desire and love He said to me: "You shall love Me, You shall love Me You shall love Me, You shall love Me" With arms wide open, a heart exposed With arms wide open, bleeding, sometimes bleeding If anybody's looking for love in all the wrong places If you've been searching for love, come to Me, come to Me Take up your cross, deny yourself Forget your father's house and run, run with Me You were made for abandonment, wholeheartedness You were made for someone greater, someone bigger, so follow Me And You'll come alive when you learn to die
