The Best Jealosy

We are all just visitors here
To be called home but too soon
Sent down to do the works
The works of a jealous god

He paid the ransom
He paid a heavy price
And all he asks of me
Is to live my life

Live by his laws
Laws of faith and goodness
Laws of peace and love
To live by the rules
Sent from above

To treat others
As you wish for yourself
To extend an arm
Share the wealth

He asks so little
And gave so much
He healed the lame and blind
Just with his touch

He is jealous for me
He longs to have me for his own
He wishes to know his children
Then bring them on home

Love like a hurricane
Grace an undending rain
I am but a man
Made steadfast as the mountain

The Rock of Ages
The Great Messiah
Emmanuel
God Among Us

He has paid my ransom
And all he asks in return
Is to live by his laws
and be eager to grow and learn

Eager to know him more
Ready to learn from our mistakes
To pass the gift along
And do what it takes

Do what is needed
To grow and love
Do what is asked
To claim stake above

He has your home built
Built upon the rocks
All you have to do
Is shed your chains and locks

For he is jealous for me
He longs to know my name
Lord of all creation
Wants you to claim

Claim his as your one and only
Shout if from the rooftops
Share what you've got
With the ones have not

Everyday thank him
Be thankful of what you've got
And every night
Pray for the ones he does not

For he is jealous for us
He longs to know your name
Lord of all creation
Wants us for his personal claim
