How Do You Love That Way
by Fred Hammond



I must have made you cry a million tears
Used enough mercy for a million years
You'd Think that now your grace would disappear
I guess that's why you call it love.

You spread your arms across eternity
You shed Your blood to buy my liberty
You fight for me with all intensity
With and undeniable love.

How do you love that way
Teach me to love that way
Why do you love that way
Whatever you do, don't stop.

addicted to my selfishness and greed
thinking my foolishness could meet my need
Pulled up flowers try’in to make room for weeds
But it doesn't approach your love
I'm so crazy.

You just correct me try'in to slow me down
Rain on me softly when my leaves are brown
Resuscitate me when I hit the ground
So tenacious with your love.

Tell me how do you love that way
I need you to teach me to love that way
Why do you love that way
Whatever you do don't stop.

How do you love that way
Want you to teach me to love that way
Why do you love that way
Oh please-Oh please don't stop.

I've wondered and wavered a ship lost at sea
I treated your mercy so frivolously
Yet and ocean of love you poured over me
Your love won't stop.

How do you love
won't you teach me to love that way
Why do you love
Whatever you do don't stop.

By holding me oh Lord your showing me
Teaching me oh lord I plainly see
That you love me
It amazes me
Whatever you do don't stop.

My humble smile is from this broken man
I loose my mind and I just don't understand
The love I need is in your nail scarred hands
3x.

(On the third repeat song fades out.)
