Lyrics

Without Christ

Written By: Kim Larkin

Verse
Some people say love is just a feelin’
It can be here today and gone tomorrow
No substance and no meanin’
You need to know that love is not about temptation
To understand it let’s go back to the foundation

Chorus
You can’t talk about love without thinking of my Jesus
He shed His blood and paid the price
Just because He wanted to free us
Love is caring, giving and making a sacrifice
Can’t talk about that without Christ
No no no no no
Can’t talk about that without Christ

Verse
Some people say love is only fiction
Like make believe or a fairytale
Dreamin’ and/or wishin’
You need to know that love is not about no magic
Cause real love exists, and there’s a man who is and has it

Chorus
You can’t talk about love without thinking of my Jesus
He shed His blood and paid the price
Just because He wanted to free us
Love is caring, giving and making a sacrifice
Can’t talk about that without Christ
No no no no no
Can’t talk about that without Christ

God Over My Life

Written By: Kim Larkin

Verse
Oh Sovereign Lord I come to thee
With reverence down on my knees
I bask in Your awesomeness
The beauty of Your holiness
Now I understand the truth
There’s no one greater than You
You’re the bright and morning star
There are countless things You are

Chorus
My joy, my peace
My hope for another day
My faith, You’re my strength
And my help when I’ve lost my way
My friend, and my world
And my rainbow in the sky
You are the God over my life

Verse
I honor You; Your Majesty
With no complaint, You died for me
So let me be as Mary was
Anoint and wash Your feet because
Your sweet words renew my soul
Which is more than silver or gold
Daily mercies I do see
Because of You I am set free
I am set free because You’re my…

Chorus
My joy, my peace, my hope for another day
My faith, You’re my strength and my help when I’ve lost my way
My friend, and my world and my rainbow in the sky
You are the God over my life

Love Defined

Written By: Kim Larkin

Verse
When I think about what love is, I remember your smile
And the way your laughter fills the air
Lady I’m so glad your mine
Cause my life is brand new
And I’m ready to say I do
Oh…

Chorus
Love defined
It is faithful, patient, honest, trusting and kind
On this wedding day I see
We were always meant to be
And I found this one thing to be true
Love is you

Verse
When I think about what love is, I remember your arms
How they hold me when I’m feeling lonely
Protecting me from hurt and harm
I thank God you found me
Look what our love has grown to be

Chorus

Bridge
You are my definition of real love
And no one can come between us
You are my definition of real love
I am yours and you are mine forever together

Chorus

Vamp
Love is you; I know that love is you

Complete Because of You

Written By: Kim Larkin

Verse
How I love you let me count the ways
I long to see that sunflower smile upon your face
We share; we share a special love
That I know only comes from above

The joy in my life will never change
As we make these vows I know that we will never be the same
Our hearts are knitted together on one accord
And this marriage is ordained by the Lord

Chorus
And for that I love you
And I cherish you each day
I love you and my loneliness is passed away
And I know you’re the one for me and you will always be
And now I am complete because of you

Verse
How I love you let me take your hand baby
We have received all of His righteousness
Now together we will stand
I’m making this promise to you on this day
Cause you’re a gift to me and I just want to say

Chorus
I love you
And I cherish you each day
I love you and my loneliness is passed away
And I know you’re the one for me and you will always be
And now I am complete because of you

Real Love

Written By: Raymond Larkin

Verse
Who You are to me is more than life
It’s always what I dreamed of; no need to pay the price
I’m overwhelmed by Your words of encouragement
And sharing the truth with me; adding no discouragement
You proved to be the real deal; directing my path toward God’s will
Showing me the true love

Chorus
You show me what is real love
You demonstrate to me real love
You opened up to me with real love
And You forgave me with real love, real love, real love

Verse
Being in love with You Lord; I love sharing this time with You
A wonderful gift I can always contain
The love You share with me will always be the same
You prove to be the real deal; directing my path toward God’s will
And showing me the truth

Chorus
You show me what is real love
You demonstrate to me real love
You opened up to me with real love
And You forgave me with real love, real love, real love

Bridge
I found my destiny in You
And it’s a dream come true
I honor You with all gratitude
Having the same praise attitude

Chorus
