THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG

This song is inspired by Song of Songs, and the passionate love of the Shepherd King for the maiden, where some of the most beautiful and intimate words are exchanged between them. The love of Jesus is beyond words and beyond time - and using these thoughts captured in this Biblical theme, we can express our love and worship. 

 

Dave Bainbridge pulled out his '12 string' for this track and created something incredibly unique as soundscape, capturing an unforgettable mood that will tug at your heart. It has lent the song an intimacy that certainly feels like a personal expression, but in reality, this track was originally sung congregationally and with an entirely different mood and flavour. It is a merit to the quality of the song, that it can be sung both as a ministry song and as led by a worship team in a church setting. 

In the middle is a section from a poem called "What is God's Love Like?" which was penned by Juliet shortly after losing twin boys at 30 weeks, both within 4 days. Knowing this, will make the poem and the song even more touching. 

 

Let this song wash over you, minister to you and speak to the deepest places within about the unfathomable love God has for you.

Juliet Dawn

LYRICS

Verse 1: 
Your banner over my life is love
Your banner over my life is love.... Purest love Too vast to measure
Too deep to fathom
Too high to contemplate
I can only say, Shepherd king
Your love makes me sing.

Chorus:
Draw me and we’ll run together, beyond time,
I am my beloved’s, He is mine,
Draw me and we’ll run together, beyond time
I am my beloved’s, He is mine... sweeter than wine

Spoken Word: 
Refreshingly purer than a desert spring
Wonderfully more beautiful than a rainbow’s hue Comfortingly more precious that a priceless jewel
And sacrificially more costly than all the treasures of the world. Soothingly warmer than springtime mornings
Reassuringly more tender than a mother’s kiss
Naturally sweeter than fragrant incense
And earnestly more steadfast than the slow turn of the earth This is God’s love.

Verse 1: 
Lord Your banner, over my life is love
Lord Your banner over my life is love...purest love
Too vast to measure
Too deep to fathom
Too high to contemplate
I can only say, Shepherd King, Your love makes me sing.

Chorus (repeat) 

Draw me and we’ll run together, beyond time,
I am my beloved’s, He is mine,
Draw me and we’ll run together, beyond time
I am my beloved’s, He is mine... sweeter than wine

Draw me and we’ll run together, beyond time,
I am my beloved’s, He is mine,
Draw me and we’ll run together, beyond time
I am my beloved’s, He is mine... sweeter than wine
