Late Have I Loved You….


i’m continuing to marvel at the lyrical and musical beauty of Gungor’s album “Beautiful Things”.  i don’t know that i’ve ever latched onto an album this long.  typically they sit in my cd player for about two weeks and then i’m on to the next thing, but this record just speaks to my heart first as sonic musical goodness and secondly due to the lyrical depth.  there are some amazing theological thoughts in each of the songs.  so much that i don’t even try to dissect them, i just let them stand for what they are.  as i listened again to my 3 year old sing ” You make beautiful things out of us” last night, God just spoke through that, then as we are getting out of the car he says, “Oooh Daddy, look at all the stars.”  I asked him who made the beautiful stars and he told me, “God put them there.”  wow.

this song might be my favorite one on the album.  it’s just a story of God running and shouting and revealing Himself to us….yeah!

Late Have I Loved You

Written by Michael Gungor

Late have I loved You
Beauty so ancient
So new

Late have I loved You
You were within me, but I was outside You
It was there that I searched for You
It was there that I searched for You

Late have I loved You
Beauty so ancient, so new

Late have I loved You
You were here with me
But I was not with You
It was there that You found me
It was there that You found me

You called and You shouted
You broke through my deafness
You flashed and you shone
Dispelled all my blindness

You breathed Your fragrance on me
You breathed Your fragrance on me

Late have I loved You
Late have I loved You

I drew in Your breath
And I keep on breathing
I’ve tasted I’ve seen
And now I want more

You breathed Your fragrance on me
You breathed Your fragrance on me

Late have I loved You
Late have I loved You
