BRIDEGROOM
A song for Mike Yaconelli, by Josiah Potter, student

you are drowning in the grace that's covering
and for a piece of silver, you nailed Him to a tree
and now you're running to the One that you betrayed
and you are speechless, with nothing to say

and you are dancing in the mercy that awaits
for a child who is running to his father everyday
in one hand a broken body and another covered in blood
but now it's covered you completely with His love

so dance, like you've never danced
and sing with the angels
lift your voice to the One
who's called you home

you are running to this Bridegroom who is waiting
for you, for you
and like a father with His arms He's holding you
because you are a prodigal who's come home

so dance, like you've never danced
and sing with the angels
lift your voice to the One
who's called you home

now you're hand in hand
with the One who loved
enough to give His son
for us

so dance, like you've never danced
and sing with the angels
lift your voice to the One
who's called you home
