Regret for and redemption from lost time away from God.


I Could Have
by Jeremy Peyton, copyright 2012

I could have loved you, my will resigned
I could have melted, my heart refined
I could have held my hand to your plow
And reaped the light I don’t see now

I could have set my feet to your race
And been the flesh to your holy grace
I could have taken your vineyard grapes
And pressed the wine of your precious praise

Li la li

I could have known you, my mind at ease
I could have drifted, your breath my breeze
I could have seen you cut through the haze
And stared into your wild loving gaze

Li la li

I could have (set my feet to your race)
Oh, I could have (taken your vineyard grapes)

Yet still I hear you race to rescue me
And the thunderous pounding of my father’s feet
Teach me to stay here, head against your chest
I’ll never have to sing of my regrets
And with my tears I will wash your feet
When I collapse in victory

Li la li
