The Lyrics

In 2 Samuel 7, God establishes His Covenant with King David. Without placing any further obligation for David to perform anything in any capacity, God pledges an eternal dynasty to David's Lineage (2 Samuel 7:15-16), The Hebrew word "chesed" in verse 15 is translated "mercy" in King James, but it is often translated "steadfast love." God's chesed was David's guarantee that his "throne would be established forever."... This so impressed David that, beginning in chapter 9, he talked about chesed to anyone who would listen - starting with Saul's grandson, the single person then alive who could make a usurpation against David's kingdom... "Chesed" love is a higher form of love than the more familiar New Testament "Agape."
Chesed is the word God used to describe
Special goodness that He has waiting here for you inside
I don't know how many times
He’s been my lovingkindness
I don't know how many times
He's healed my eyes from blindness
I don't know how many times
He would not let my mind stress
Needlessly as He was
Urging me to place my trust in His love.

Blessed is the word that more than applies
To the hope in my heart for now I realize
That I am blessed when the people dare to criticize me
That I am blessed when the faithless man decries me
That I am blessed when the angry world they so despise me
That they make up lies
To silence all the words of your chesed love.

Oh, I am learning just now that man will never find
The words that define chesed love
That give the right eternal message, just the right mind
That I'd comprehend, understand
That Chesed likely will stay undefined

Oh I could say agape but you must realize
That agape is found in scores of other guys
But only you, God, who caused Redeemer to rise
Can pour out chesed, also known as steadfast love in infinite supplies.

Chesed is the word God used to describe
Special goodness that He has waiting here for you inside
I don't know how many times
He’s been my lovingkindness
I don't know how many times
He's healed my eyes from blindness
I don't know how many times
He would not let my mind stress
Needlessly as He was
Urging me to place my trust in His love.

Chesed is the word
