Rock Sunday: I Want to Fall in Love With You by Jars of Clay


Happy Easter minna-san!

For today's post, I'm featuring Jars of Clay.

I'm not a devout Catholic and honestly, I can't remember clearly the last time I attended Sunday mass, but I've got my faith and I'll always be God's believer. And one thing that helps me in a way is listening to the songs of Christian bands using rock music as their medium to spread His words and teachings.

Such is Jars of Clay, a band from Tennessee whose name was lifted from the NIV translation of 2 Corinthians 4:7 -- "But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us."

Kakkoii desu ne?

I find this song from them to be a very beautiful one -- combining great music, vocals, and lyrics into a piece that evokes feelings of peace, serenity, and a desire to serve God in whatever way possible. Anyway, I'll keep it simple and let the lyrics speak for themselves.

"I WANT TO FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU"
Jars of Clay


In open fields of wild flowers
She breathes the air and flies away
She thanks her Jesus for the daises and the roses
In no simple language, someday she'll understand the meaning of it all

He's more than the laughter or the stars in the heaven
As close as a heartbeat or a song on her lips
Someday she'll trust Him and learn how to see Him
Someday He'll call her and she will come running
and fall in His arms, the tears will fall down and she'll pray

"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You"

Sitting silent wearing Sunday best
The sermon echoes through the walls
A great salvation through it calls to the people
Who stare into nowhere, and can't feel the chains on their souls

He's more than the laughter or the stars in the heaven
As close as a heartbeat or a song on our lips
Someday we'll trust Him and learn how to see Him
Someday He'll call us and we will come running
And fall in His arms, the tears will fall down and we'll pray

"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You"

It seems too easy to call you "Savior"
Not close enough to call you "God"
So as I sit and think of words I can mention
To show my devotion

"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You"

"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You"
"I want to fall in love with You"

(My heart beats for You)



"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." ~ John 3:16
