It's Got To Be

Derek Homer

Story

The inspiration for this song came as I tried to find many words to describe God's love. The chorus started out with different words each time, until I finally settled on the Chorus in it's current form.

I also enjoyed writing in 6/8 time for a change!

Lyrics

Verse 1

Lord,
Why did you call my name
When I had gone astray
Lord,
Why did you run toward me
When I had wandered away

Verse 2

Lord,
Why did you seek me out
When I had gone so far
Lord,
When I had turned from You
You called me into Your arms

Pre-Chorus

All of my sin
All of my shame is defeated
Forgiven again and again, I am redeemed...
now I believe

Chorus

It's got to be love...
Inexplainable love
Inescapable
Your incredible love
You show me love…
Unconditional love
Uncomparable
Your unshakable love
(Love...)

Verse 3

Lord,
Why would you touch my life
When I would hide my heart
Lord,
Why did you bleed for me
When I deserved the charge

Pre-Chorus

Double Chorus

Bridge x2

I'm wrapped in Your mercy and grace
Forgiven again and again and again 
I'm caught in a love like none other
I don’t deserve You
I'm wrapped in Your mercy and grace
Forgiven again and again and again 
I'm caught in a love like none other
No one can love me the way that you do

Chorus
