“to be alone with You”

to be alone with you | sufjan stevens

I’d swim across Lake Michigan
I’d sell my shoes
I’d give my body to be back again
In the rest of the room
To be alone with you
To be alone with you
To be alone with you
To be alone with you

You gave your body to the lonely
They took your clothes
You gave up a wife and a family
You gave your ghost
To be alone with me
To be alone with me
To be alone with me
You went up on a tree

To be alone with me
You went up on a tree

I’ve never known a man who loved me

— — —

i drove home from small group tonight, in the dark, in the rain, with my windows down, getting cold and damp but feeling alive. talking. praying. isn’t it beautiful how we can be alone with the fiery Creator of the universe, and talk with Him as if He were sitting right beside us?

because He is. no — even closer than right beside. He has His arms around us.

and to be alone with me, He hung upon a tree.

He became the curse, for me.

tell me, soul — how can you not be floored by that? how can you not be consumed with love in response — you are in Love now. how could you want anything else?
