Reckless Love

Reckless Love

Caleb Culver, Cory Asbury, Ran Jackson


“Suppose one of you had a hundred sheep and lost one. Wouldn’t you leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the lost one until you found it? When found, you can be sure you would put it across your shoulders, rejoicing, and when you got home call in your friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Celebrate with me! I’ve found my lost sheep!’ Count on it—there’s more joy in heaven over one sinner’s rescued life than over ninety-nine good people in no need of rescue.

– Luke 15:4-7 (The Message)


Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me

Oh the overwhelming, never ending,
reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ’till I’m found,
leaves the ninety nine
I couldn’t earn it I don’t deserve it
Still, You give yourself away
Oh the overwhelming, never ending
reckless love of God

When I was Your foe, still Your love fought for me
You have been so, so good to me
When I felt no worth, You paid it all for me
You have been so, so kind to me

There’s no shadow You won’t light up,
mountain You won’t climb up, coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down,
no lie You won’t tear down, coming after me


This is a worship song that serves as much as a reminder to us as it does a praise song for God. God is well-aware of his own reckless love; how it climbs walls, crosses oceans, denies rejection and defies human logic just to make itself known to us. What’s important when singing this song is to remember that truth, and to then thank Him for that caution-to-the-wind love that has given us eternal life. -Matt Greene
