Song Of All Songs/Chapter One
www.SongOfAllSongs.com

The first 5 songs on Chapter One are foundational to understanding the Song of Solomon. Let these first 5 songs get deep into your heart. I like using anointing oil sometimes as I listen to the songs. Frankincense and myrrh is one of my favorite oils. It's what Jesus smells like in Song of Solomon 3:6.

Song 1: Bridegroom King (SOS 1:2a)... Ask God to reveal His intimate love and word to you... Why?
Song 2: Better Than Wine (SOS 1:2b)... Because His love is better than everything else.
Song 3: Pour Your Name Forth (SOS 1:3)... Because He smells sooooo good.
Song 4: Draw Me After You (SOS 1:4a)... This song is your “mission statement” as a lover of God.

SOS 1:4a is the “first and second commandment” from the Bible: “To know and love God (Draw me after You) and to make His love known to others (and we will run together)”.

Song 5: The Chambers Of My King (SOS 1:4b)... This is God's response to your prayer for intimacy.

The next two songs:
Our journey begins in Song of Solomon 1:5 as we realize we are dark but lovely to God. Yes we deserve to die and go to hell because of sin in our hearts but God loves us deeply and sees us for who we are in Christ. Even while we were yet sinners Christ died for us and even while we are dark in heart we are lovely to Him. He sees the “yes” of God's love that by grace has come deep into our spirit and because of that we are beautiful to Him. This song is important to get deep into your heart. Let this song wash you over and over. God loves you and wants you to have a deep, personal connection with Him in your heart... intimacy without shame or guilt or any fear of Him rejecting you. Even though you are weak and make mistakes, you are lovely to God. Trust and follow Jesus... He will help you grow.

Song 6: Dark But Lovely (SOS 1:5-6)... As long as we live in these mortal bodies... sing this song.
Song 7: The Shepherd and His Sheep (SOS 5-8)... Follow Jesus and stay in the body of Christ.

The next two songs:
You are amazing to God... He sees you for who you really are... You are the bride of Christ. He sees where this whole thing is heading... and already here in Chapter One He is whispering sweet messages into your spirit about the reality of who you really are. You are like His favorite filly among an army of majestic and powerful horses... Sing His word back to Him. He has a beautiful plan for you and He will be faithful to perfect His love in your heart... and to give you “ornaments of gold with beads of silver”.

Song 8: Filly Of The King (SOS 1:9-10)... You are the Lord's chosen.
Song 9: Baptize My Heart (SOS 1:11)... He is perfecting His word in your heart.

Regarding the last song on Chapter One:
The last song on Chapter One and the first four songs on Chapter Two are a “five song set”. We need to stay in this place for a looooooong time. Go deep here... and stay here until “He calls you off the couch”. Jesus desires for you to “know” Him intimately. He'll let you know when it's time to get off the couch and run together. Seek intimacy with Jesus. Now is the time to go deep... deep in love with Jesus.

Song 10: You Are Mine (SOS 1:12-17)... Hours and hours forever and ever.

Track Name: The Shepherd And His Sheep
The Shepherd and His Sheep
Meditations from the Song of Songs 1:5-8
Words and music by Lee Behnken (Written 11/2/06)

By the Shepherd’s tent I’ll find
A pasture for my soul
And in the valley, lilies white
Each one my Father knows
Oh there I’ll find my one true love
The one I long to see
I will follow on the trail
Of the Shepherd and His sheep

I am darkened, black and burnt
The sun has withered me
Others made me work their ground
And my garden’s full of weeds
Oh why should I be one who’s veiled
Ashamed of being seen
I will follow on the trail
Of the Shepherd and His sheep

Tell me where to feed my herd
Oh where can we lie down
Who will comfort, who will lead
Where righteousness is found
Oh tell me You who my soul loves
Where do Your loved ones feed
I will follow on the trail
Of the Shepherd and His sheep (Repeat first verse)

Jesus, only Jesus… Jesus, only You
Gentle, tender Shepherd… I will follow You
I will follow on the trail of the Shepherd and His sheep
Track Name: Filly Of The King

For Your ho… nor… for Your glo… ry
For Your plea… sure… oh my King

Among… the army of a conquering king

With horses running all around me
I am running strong and free
With bridal jewelry, gold and silver
Around my neck and on my cheeks

(Repeat first chorus)

With horses running… all around me
I am running strong and free
With bridal jewelry, gold and silver
Around my neck and on my cheeks
O love unbridled… holy passion
Unrestrained… running free

For Your ho… nor… for Your glo… ry
For Your plea… sure… oh my King
For Your ho… nor… for Your glo… ry
For Your pleasure… oh my King

Song of Songs 1:12-17

While the King is at His table my heart sends forth its’ worship
…as perfume sends forth its’ fragrance

My Beloved is to me a pouch of myrrh
That lies all night upon my heart
Meditating on You all night long
The life You gave upon the cross
Savior of my soul, You are mine, I am Yours
Healer of my heart, You are mine, I am Yours

My Beloved is to me a bundle of blooms
Vineyard grown in the wilderness
Fragrance like Your name sweet perfume
Pouring forth memories of You
Lover of my soul, You are mine, I am Yours
Keeper of my heart, You are mine, I am Yours

I have eyes for You, and You alone, You are mine, I am Yours
You are pleasing to, my heart oh God, You are mine, I am Yours
You love me and I love You… You are mine, I am Yours

My God… the fragrance of My God…
And I am to You… I am… the fragrance of my God
Your scent is on my heart… my heart is Your perfume
Your scent is on my heart… I worship only You
On our comforting couch…
Lavished-luxuriant-love…lingering/lasting/forever and ever
In our strong and fragrant house…
For hours-and-hours-forever-and-ever
You are mine, I am Yours
