"BATTLE WOUNDS"

Verse 1
Greater love has no man than you, My friends.
You lay down your lives for My little lambs. -
You count each one your own. You've warmed My heart, loves.
You've caught My eye and I love you so.
Oh, can you see the tears of thanks stream from My eyes?

Chorus 1
And your battle wounds glow.
Once in Heaven, all Earth will know
That you're My dears who fought on despite your fears.
And I will wipe away each tear you've cried.
My brides I cherish so.
Your love to Me is priceless, Your love I love to know.

Verse 2
My loves, you lead and pave the way,
The weight you bear, I know.
You guide others to My side.
Your hands bleed as you pluck the rose.
You've given all your heart to Me,
My law you live each day.
Thanks for your love and your faithfulness,
And all you give each day,
I promise to repay.

Chorus 2
How your battle wounds glow.
Once in Heaven, all Earth will know
That you're My dears who fought on despite your fears.
And I will wipe away each tear you've cried.
My brides I cherish so.
Your love to Me is priceless, Your love I love to know.

Bridge
You've borne My yoke with yieldedness,
Your scars declare your faithfulness.
You do it all for Me.
Approach Me now, receive the new anointing that I have for you,
Then rise up, for greater works you'll do.

Chorus 3
How your battle wounds glow.
Once in Heaven, all Earth will know
That you're My dears who fought on despite your fears.
And I will wipe away each tear you've cried.
My brides I cherish so.
Your love to Me is priceless,
My need for you is endless.
The joy we share is boundless.
Your love I love to know.
