No greater love
Rachael Lampa Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Before I knew your name,
You knew my every breath.
Before I found my way,
You knew my every step.
Before I found everything that I need,
You gave it all to me.

[Chorus]
No greater love than this
That you should lay down your life.
For someone such as me,
I'd spend a lifetime wondering why.
The beauty of heaven is here in my heart,
And I know there can be
No greater love than this.

I never understood
How merciful love could be.
Until I felt his flame
Light every part of me.
And I would give everything that I am,
Cause I have been saved.
Yes, I have been saved!

[Chorus]

The beauty of heaven is here in my heart,




And I know there can be
No greater love than this.
