Andrew Smith

I haven't listened to this album (Through my emotions) for a long time. What a great album! Shaun and I loved being a part of this guys worship in New Brunswick years ago and got to hear this song live. I will not forget it. Have a read of these beautiful lyrics.


Have you Seen my beloved

I had a dream, and so real it seemed
I've written it down on these pages.
The angles were singing,
The heavens were ringing
with a song that was heard through the ages.
They sang out a story to the praise of God's glory;
a story of love and romance.
The tale of a girl, without hope in the world
and the Lover who taught her to dance.

Seeing her helpless estate
He emptied Himself just to save her.
Kneeling to look in her eyes
Awakening love deep within her.
Dancing all through the night
to the music of Spirit and Truth
Sharing their joy and delight.
Their first love was so strong and true.

Have you seen my beloved?
He stole my heart away
Do you know my beloved?
He'll take your breath away

Turning to follow a lie;
her heart grew as cold as a stone.
Wandering, insatiable eyes
had led her so far from home.
Broken she cried out for Him;
searching throughout the city.
Weeping, He lifted her chin
-and so won the heart of his lady.

Have you seen my beloved?
He stole my heart away
Do you know my beloved?
He'll take your breath away.
Have you seen my beloved?
Eyes of fire, heart of gold
Do you know my beloved?
History is His story told

Come sing out a story to the praise of God's glory;
a story of love and romance.
The tale of a girl, with out hope in the world
and the Lover who taught her to dance.

Jenny,
I can put in a request for you, but I don't think that Shaun is planning to do this one! ;o) I can really picture someone (maybe Michelle) doing a dance to this song though. It would be beautiful!!

OHHHH!!!!! Shaun and I think that is soooo neat Cheryl. We so loved getting to "experience" worship with Andrew at the conference that we went to so many years ago. We also attended a teaching that he gave on Creativity. It was awesome too!

Have a wonderful time in Europe!!
