Misty Edwards lyrics (and chords!)

Updated on April 22, 2012

Who is Misty Edwards?

Misty Edwards is a lover of Jesus and a worship leader / intercessor / leader at the International House of Prayer - Kansas City. I enjoy the songs she sings about the Lord, as well as the prophetic songs expressing the heart of Jesus for us, His beloved. This is a compilation of lyrics of her songs, some of which I've also found online, but also others that I've not been able to find online and made transcriptions of.

I believe you will be blessed by the glimpse into His heart through her songs.

Arms Wide Open

I love this song, how it points us to the amazing love of God shown through the cross!

Chord pattern (all throughout):

Bm - G - D/F# - A

What does love look like

It's the question

I've been pondering

What does love look like

What does love look like

It's the question

I've been asking

I once believed that love was romance

Just a chance

I even thought that love was for the lucky

And the beautiful

I once believed that love was a momentary bliss

Love was all this

All You ever wanted was my attention

All You ever wanted was love from me

All You ever wanted was my affection

To sit here at Your feet

So tell me

What does love look like

It's the question

I've been pondering

What does love look like

If all of life comes down to love

So tell me

What does love look like

And I sat down a little frustrated and confused

If all of life comes down to love

Then love has to be more than sentiment

More than selfishness and selfish game

Then I saw Him there hanging on a tree

Looking at me

I saw Him there hanging on a tree

Looking at me

He was looking at me

Looking at Him

Staring through me

I could not escape

Those beautiful eyes

And I began to weep and weep

He had arms wide open

Heart exposed

Arms wide open

He was bleeding, bleeding

Arms wide open

A heart exposed

Arms wide open

He was bleeding, bleeding

Love's definition

Love's definition was looking at me

Looking at Him

Hanging on a tree

I began to weep and weep and weep

This is how I know what love is

This is how I know what love is

This is how I know what love is

Dove's Eyes

I Knew What I was Getting Into

This was a prophetic word... Listen to Him tell you He's happy about having chosen you!

I knew what I was getting into when called you.

I knew what I was getting into when I said your name, but I said it just the same.

I knew what I was getting into and I still want you.

I knew what I was getting into.

I knew what I was getting into and I still chose you.

I knew what I was getting into and I still want you.

I knew what I was getting into when I said your name, but I said it just the same.

I knew what I was getting into.

And I am not shocked by your weakness.

And I am not shocked even by your sin.

And I am not shocked by your brokenness.

I knew what I was getting into and I still want you.

I knew what I was getting into and I still like you.

I knew what I was getting into and I still chose you.

Cuz only I can see the end from the beginning.

And only I can see where this is going.

And only I can see the end from the beginning.

And I see in you the seeds of love.

And I see in you strength when all you see is your failure and all you feel is ashamed.

I can see deeper than that.

I know you better than that.

[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/m/misty_edwards/i... ]

I knew what I was getting into when called you.

I knew what I was getting into when I said your name.

I said it just the same.

I knew what getting into and I still want you.

I knew what I was getting into and I still like you.

Your only at the beginning.

You've only just begun and I know where you are going

And all you can see in the moment is that your hurting.

And all you can see in the moment is that your aching.

I knew what I was getting into when I called you.

I knew what I was getting into and I still want you.

I knew what I was getting into and I still like you.

I knew what I was getting into when I called you.

Just don't give up.

And don't give in.

If you don't quit. You win, you win.

Just don't give up.

And don't give in.

If you don't quit. You win, you win.

Everything is in my hands.

It's going to be alright.

Everything is in my hands.

It's going to be alright.

It's going to be okay.

Everything is in my hands.

It's going to be alright.

It's going to be Okay.

And you don't have to pretend to be something or someone your not.

Cuz I know you better than that, even better, even better than that.

Listen my Beloved.

I knew what I was getting into when I called you.

I knew what I was getting into when I said your name.

I said it just the same.

I knew what I was getting into and I still like you.

I knew what I was getting into and I still chose you.
