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

The first four songs on Chapter Two are again part of a “five song set” that actually starts with the last song on Chapter One (You Are Mine). We need a deep and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ to be established in our hearts... This takes time. Of the thousands of hours that I've spent in the Song Of All Songs I have spent 100s of hours weeping here in “this place”. This portion of scripture is some of the most intimate and beautiful worship in all of the Bible. Stay in this place of worship... as long as it's needed... as long as it pleases. The Lord will call you when it's time to get off the couch and take risks on the mountains. You need to get deeply connected to God... Stay here on the couch.

Song 1: The One That You Love (SOS 2:1-2)... Jesus says you are His favorite... sing this song to Him.
Song 2: Apple Tree (SOS 2:3)... Jesus, there is no one like You... Awaken Your love in my heart.
Song 3: Lovesick And Longing (SOS 2:4-5)... Jesus, Your love is my food... Sustain me, refresh me.
Song 4: Here On The Couch (SOS 2:6-7)... Rest deeply... KNOW this intimate place in Jesus.

The next two songs:
Jesus is now calling His love to come out of the comfort zone, to trust and follow Him into a place of risk. Tasks that you once thought impossible now stand before you like mountains and Jesus is calling you to trust Him and to ascend these mountains with Him. He has established in your heart a place of deep and personal intimacy with Him and now He's calling you “off the couch” to come run with Him.

Song 5: The Voice Of My Beloved (SOS 2:8-9)... I love the violin (voice of my Beloved) on this song.
Song 6: Come Away (SOS 2:10-13)... We are growing in love.

The next two songs:
It's normal to be afraid of stepping out in faith... Mountains can be dangerous. “You there in the secret place in the rock (Jesus)... keep looking and singing to Jesus”. He loves it... even when you're afraid.

Song 7: Dove Song (SOS 2:14)... Jesus I love You... Jesus I need You.
Song 8: Jesus We Love You (SOS 2:14)... Dedicated to dear loved ones who are trying to understand.

The next song:
We are all sooooo fragile in our hearts. We all have areas in our lives that trouble us. We want to grow and get strong in our faith and to be able to trust Jesus in areas of risk but then there's these dang foxes!

Song 9: Catch Us The Foxes (SOS 2:15)... They keep wrecking our tender new beginnings.

The next song:
Song 10: You Are Mine/Reprise (SOS 2:16)... Jesus, You are mine and I know where You feed me.

The last song on Chapter Two:
Song 11: Until The Day Breaks (SOS 2:17)... I'm just too afraid to go run on the mountains with You.

You're going to LOOOOOVE Chapter 3 and 4... and 5... and 6... and 7... and 8... More Lord... More!!!

Beautiful, wonderful

Beautiful, wonderful
Here in this beautiful, wonderful, marvelous bed
Your left hand is under my head

Beautiful, wonderful
Here in this beautiful, wonderful, marvelous place

Song of Songs 2:8-9

The voice of my Beloved is calling to me
The voice of my Beloved is calling to me

He’s leaping on the mountains
Skipping on the hills
He’s standing there outside our house
Beyond our windowsill
He’s looking deep inside me
Calling out my name
Calling me to open up
To trust and follow Him

The voice of my Beloved is calling to me
The voice of my Beloved is calling to me

We’ll always have the cottage
We’ll always have the couch
The taste of the atonement and
The feasting in the house
We’ll always have the apple tree
The love that we have there
But now I want you running
On the mountains with Me here

The voice of my Beloved…
The voice of my Beloved is calling…
The voice of my Beloved…
The voice of my Beloved (X3) is calling to me

We are growing in Jesus

Rise up My love and come away with Me
Rise up My love and come away
To the mountains, to the hilltops, to the high place
And I will show you things
See the flowers, it’s time for singing, hear the dove song
Winter is gone… (Repeats)
Rise up my love and come away
Rise up my love and come away

…We’re green and growing
New and tender
And it’s a good smell!

Rise up My love, My fair one and come away

Dove Song
Song of Songs 2:14
Words and music by Lee Behnken 3/07-9/07

See me Jesus
See me gazing at You
Through the veil Lord Jesus
See my face loving You

Hear me Jesus
Hear me praying to You
Through the veil Lord Jesus
Hear my voice calling You

Hold me close oh Lord (God)…
Lift up my veil… and look through
The clefts of the rock
In the secret place
Hear my voice
See my face
Your dove is singing her sweet refrain

Oh listen to my dove song…
I love You… I need You

I… love You…
I… need You… Jesus
Oh listen to my dove song… I love You
Track Name: Jesus We Love You
Jesus We Love You
Song of Songs 2:14
Words and music dreamed and written by Lee Behnken (6/22/06)

How can a man be a man if he's not
sure who he is deep inside
How can a man be the bride of Christ
What is this mystery in life

How can I change who I am in my heart
How could I possibly try
If there is a way I can know You oh Lord
Please come and open my eyes

(Chorus)
Jesus I love You
Jesus I need You
Jesus I love You
Jesus I need You

Take me away to the clefts of the rock
Hide me away in the cliff
Show me this love that's beyond what I know
High in the place where You live

Here is my face, come and look in my eyes
Here is my heart as it is
Here is my voice, oh Lord come hear my song
I'm singing with all I can give

(Chorus) Repeats
(Instrumental)
A bruised reed He will not break.
A smoldering wick He will not snuff out.
(Chorus with “Jesus we love You”) Repeats
Track Name: Catch Us The Foxes
Catch Us The Foxes
Song of Songs 2:15
Words and music by Lee Behnken

When I am tired, when I am weak
When I’m alone and I am in need
Fears come in and they come in to eat
Spoiling our tender intimacy

Words that are wrong, thoughts that creep
Cunning and clever, crafty they sneak
Stealing our fruit that was meant to be sweet
Spoiling our tender intimacy
Spoiling our tender intimacy

Catch us the foxes
Those little foxes

Catch us the foxes that spoil the vine
Those little foxes
Catch us the foxes that spoil the vine
Those little foxes
For we have tender love
We have tender love

They come in the dark, compromising me
Robbing my heart, hiding and biting me
They come into my heart, compromising and
Spoiling our tender intimacy
Spoiling our tender intimacy
They are spoiling our tender intimacy

Chorus… (We have tender love) x4

Chorus… (We have tender love) x4
Growing tender love… growing tender love
Track Name: You Are Mine (reprise)
You Are Mine (Reprise)
Song of Songs 2:16
Words and music by Lee Behnken

You are mine
I am Yours

You feed me in the holy place
(You are mine… I am Yours)

You feed me in Your purity
(You are mine… I am Yours)

You feed me in Your beauty
(You are mine… I am Yours)

You feed me among the lilies
(You are mine… I am Yours)
Track Name: Until the Day Breaks
Until The Day Breaks
Song of Songs 2:17
Words and music stewarded by Lee Behnken

Turn my Beloved and be on Your way
I am too weak, broken, afraid
I would betray You time and again
Though I do love You, my Beloved friend

Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away
Turn and run on the mountains like a deer
Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away
Turn and run on the mountains of my fear
Turn my Beloved and be on Your way

Turn my Beloved and be on Your way
Until I am free of these things that I hate
I cannot follow each step with You
Though I do love You, though I really do

Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away
Turn and run on the mountains like a deer
Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away
Turn and run on the mountains of my fear
Turn my Beloved and be on Your way

Turn my Beloved and be on Your way
I will stay here in my bed and I’ll wait
Remembering when I once held You near
Though I do love You, the shadows I fear

Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away
Turn and run on the mountains like a deer
Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away
Turn and run on the mountains of my fear
Turn my Beloved and be on Your way
