Dennis Harvey This is a beautiful love song, a duet by you and Jesus. The song is like many of the Psalms: Some verses are sung by you in the first person and some by Jesus in the first person. The first verse is Genesis 1:2 and the last verse is the assurance from Jesus that it doesn't matter how bad you have been, He still has the power and the desire to forgive you. And Heaven is going to be fun, a whompin' good time. Sep 08, 2010
