Third Day – I’ve Always Loved You

I’ll just leave this here for your Monday. I saw Third Day live when they were on tour with Tenth Avenue North and Trevor Morgan a few years ago, and I get chills every time I think about hearing this song live. This is a live version with Third Day and Trevor Morgan that’s similar to the one I remember.

I don’t know how to explain it
But I know that words will hardly do
Miracles with signs and wonders
Aren’t enough for me to prove to you

Don’t you know I’ve always loved you
Even before there was time
Though you turn away
I’ll tell you still
Don’t you know I’ve always loved you
And I always will

Greater love has not a man
Than the one who gives his life to prove
That he would do anything
And that’s what I’m going to do for you

Don’t you know I’ve always loved you
Even before there was time
Though you turn away
I’ll tell you still
Don’t you know I’ve always loved you
And I always will

Little One, your only task is to know deeply in your soul — in that unshakeable place that isn’t rattled by rejection and loss and ego — that you are worthy of interest.
