Houghton, Israel - Reckless Love Lyrics




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

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'til 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've been so, so good to me
When I felt no worth, You paid it all for me
You've been so, so kind to me

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'til 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

You keep chasing me down

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
Lie You won't tear down
Coming after 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
Lie You won't tear down
Coming after 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
Lie You won't tear down
Coming after me

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights 'til I'm found, leaves the ninety-nine
And I couldn't earn it, I don't deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeah

I thank You, Lord
I thank You, Lord
I thank You, Lord

    first off, i know that Israel has the best male voice ever to be on the face of the earth, and can even out sing most angels ...but this was originally an anointed song ....he literally beat the anointing right out of it with his vocal riffing (which sounds so full of pride to me personally) ...sorry, but im just so tempted to believe this condemnation ...how he can totally go about destroying ithis amazing song, and be totally oblivious to doing it is really puzzling ...but i suppose it must be tough stewarding one of the top gospel voices in the whole world ...no one perfect ...but as for me, i prefer even Bob Dylans voice over Israel's, because Israels voice sounds too good ...i like some character left in a voice , and Israels voice has no endearing character flaws ...just perfection ...i suppose its because of envy i dont like his voice even though its technically good singing? ...and i know that is evil, but im just being honest with myself, i dont like too many black peoples voices really, because of all that vocal riffing blacks are famous for doing ...over-swooping is really annoying to me personally ...thats why i dont mind the black News Boys singer, because he does not do all that "black vocal swooping" ...so maybe it is just over-swooping i hate?, but then why dont i dislike the sound of it as much when whites do the swooping thing? ...and i hate it when guys do it worse than when women swoop ...in fact, it can be kinda sexy when women do it, but gross when men do it ......so i guess maybe its a sexist and racist thing im dealing with in my heart? ...weird huh? ...but, i am genuinely praying about having any racist feelings when i am tempted with them ...i am trying to be honest here, my purpose is not for tearing down, but for musical and Spiritual edification ...musicians in the Kingdom need better awareness and discernment

  43. vickie robertson

    i love it😍😍

  44. Yvonne Ortiz

    This song isamazingto all wht is god is good

  45. Sharonda Huntley -Mott

    Reckless LOVE of GOD ❤

  46. Nene O

    So people can't simply enjoy the song without murmuring, complaining, whining, judging about which version is better? Peeps please just take the one you like and allow it to minister. Leave the "gospel awards" to the world.

  73. omega36001

    Israel needs to stop being like Satan and put the microphone down, get off the stage and go save his family and wife from his life of selfishness. Satan is nervous that Israel is going after his job? Chief Musician of hell. Quit SINGING FOR GOD AND START LIVING FOR GOD MORE FAITHFULLY. STOP! THE HYPOCRISY!!!

  74. chrispleasantable

    “No one has a greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friend.”- Romans 15:13

  75. Diana Albert

    This song is so powerful. My church sung it for praise and worship. It was also the first time I heard this song. It had me so emotional. Kept singing it on my way home from church today. It's on repeat.

  76. Paxton Abrahams

    This is the one song I wouldn't mind listening to forever❤❤❤

  77. OMARA PAUL

    Gods love is in abundant

  78. Sean Bartley

    Interesting Song Israel,but why "Reckless Love" ? God's love is not reckless. Texts such as 1John 3:1 ,1Cor 13:13, John 3:16 etc show that God's love is not reckless( careless,rash or hasty) Could you shed some light on why you titled the song "Reckless Love". By the way I like your music. Blessings.

    Alecia Yarbough

    I think God's love for us is reckless in the fact that no matter what He loves us without caring to stop and He loves us without hesitation.

  79. Norelys M

    Look upon you and Adrienne♥💯

  80. Brenda Purnell
