Holy Eros

Your holy fire brings holy desire
Stripping away all blackened lust

With sweet humility I'm set free
You've won my heart's only trust

Lost in You my mind is made new
I taste Your Beauty from within

It cleans my soul making me whole
Making me feel youthful again

Your glory smiles all the while
Infinite wealth of joy is mine

Done with the race seeing your face
Our Beauty will forever shine

God is the all-glorious, all-knowing, infinitely wise, self-sufficient, all-powerful one. I'm nothing. I'm powerless and depend on Him. I humble myself in surrendered trust in His Divine Providence.

Christ is Everything
I need Him
He is everything you need
Believe Him

Life is a Person
Recieve Him
Open up your heart & sing

Open yourself to the New Creation
Open yourself to the joy of change

-----------------------------


What a kind intention
What abounding grace
How our God came down to earth
To join the human race

With You My Love

When I'm with you I feel brand new
As wonder and joy fill my heart

In this romance we sing and dance
Intertwined never shall we part

As beauty flows my heart only knows
True love is what I have found

Your sweetest kiss brings heavens bliss
As music of the stars shines down

With you as my own I'm never alone
Secure within your loving arms

My heart's set free with high ecstasy
Inside your world of lovely charms
God is the all-glorious, all-knowing, infinitely wise, self-sufficient, all-powerful one. I'm nothing. I'm powerless and depend on Him. I humble myself in surrendered trust in His Divine Providence.

Hymn 510

SUBJECT: EXPERIENCE OF CHRIST-AS EVERYTHING
METER: 8.6.8.6.
AUTHOR: Witness Lee
COMPOSER: May Chenevix-Trench

1 I’ve found the One of peerless worth,
My heart doth sing for joy;
And sing I must, for Christ I have:
Oh, what a Christ have I!

2 My Christ, He is the Lamb of God,
Who full salvation brings;
He is the Sun of Righteousness,
With healing in His wings.

3 My Christ, He is the Tree of Life
With fruit abundant, sweet;
My hunger He doth satisfy;
Of Him I daily eat.

4 My Christ, He is the smitten Rock
Whence living waters burst;
He is the fountain in my heart
Which quenches all my thirst.

5 Christ is my life, my light, my way,
My comfort and my health,
My peace, my rest, my joy, my hope,
My glory and my wealth.

6 Christ is my wisdom and my pow’r,
My boast and righteousness,
My vict’ry and redemption sure,
My truth and holiness.

7 Christ is my Savior, Shepherd, Lord,
My Advocate above,
My Counsellor, my Father, God,
My Brother, Friend, and Love.

8 Christ is my Captain and my Guard,
My Teacher and my Guide,
My Bridegroom, Master and my Head;
In me doth He reside.

9 Christ is my Prophet, Priest, and King;
My Prophet full of sight;
My Priest that stands ‘twixt me and God,
My King that rules with might.

10 Christ is the Author of my faith,
And its Perfecter too,
My Mediator, Guarantee,
And faithful Witness true.

11 Christ is my everlasting home,
My all-sufficient land;
My fortress, tower, hiding-place,
And my eternal stand.

12 Christ is my sabbath and new moon,
My morning and my day,
My age and my eternity
That ne’er will pass away.

13 Christ is my trust and my desire,
In comeliness replete,
My satisfaction and delight,
Who all my need doth meet.

14 My Christ, the all-inclusive One,
My Christ what shall I call?
He is the first, He is the last,
My Christ is All in all.

15 Since such a treasure I possess,
My heart doth sing for joy;
And I must sing, and sing again;
Oh, what a Christ have I!

Thank you St. Michael. You have indeed expressed holy eros.

And Origen, you have made a good attempt at expression Christ as the personification of agape.
Paidion

Man judges a person by his past deeds, and administers penalties for his wrongdoing. God judges a person by his present character, and disciplines him that he may become righteous.
