Hosea Rock Opera Song #14

This is it, the final song of the work.  Hosea is singing of his love for Gomer, how it morphed from an obedience of God’s instruction to a genuine love as he began to see the Gomer which God had created her to be, and he takes on a little of the position of God with regard to his relationship with his bride, sort of a hypostatic thing.  I had Gordon Lightfoot running through my head as I wrote this.

Gomer, I never dreamed that I would feel this way, I never thought that this could ever be.  I never guessed that any of this ever would come true, when God came down and laid this task on me.

He said He wanted me to show the world just how he felt, He’d given laws but now he wanted more, the bond he had established between Him and all of us, was now more like a husband and a whore.

So hear me now, oh, flower of my life.  Hear me as I speak of love to you.  You’re not just an object in a tale to make a point, my love that’s grown is pure as gold and true. I started out an actor who God had give’n a part, but now you are the piece that fills the hole that’s in my heart.  Yes you are now the piece that fills the hole that’s in my heart.

I know at first you didn’t think I meant a single word.  I looked just like another lonely john.  And if your eyes could look inside my chest and see my heart, you’d clearly see that you weren’t very wrong.

I wasn’t there to buy your body but I know my path was bent.  I simply was obeying on a task where I’d been sent.  I played my part so perfectly I even fooled myself.  My life was just a poverty that I believed was wealth.

So hear me now, on, flower of my life.  Hear me as I speak of love to you.  You’re not just an object in a tale to make a point, my love that’s grown is pure as gold and true.

I started out an actor who God had give’n a part, but now you are the piece that fills the hole that’s in my heart.  Yes you are now the piece that fills the hole that’s in my heart.

Funny how our roles soon changed and yin has turned to yang, I thought that I was whole and you were sick.  But you never pretended to be other than you were, while I just played a part and that laid thick.

I preached love was a set of rules and holier than thous, I thought that I stooped down to be your man.  I thought that my stuff didn’t stink, that I was right with God, and you were just a pawn in God’s big plan.  And you were just a pawn in God’s big plan.

But once I got you in my life you and God worked on me, I saw that you and I were quite the same.  And soon I saw the Gomer who God made that girl to be, and in my heart my love burst into flame.

I saw that you were changing but I saw the world still pulled, I prayed and begged and ached that you’d be true.  But here you couldn’t stay, and when you packed and hit the road, the truth shown down and finally I knew, my love for God was now my love for you.  My love for God was now my love for you.

So hear me now, oh, flower of my life.  Hear me as I speak of love to you.  You’re not just an object in a tale to make a point, my love that’s grown is pure as gold and true.

I started out an actor who God had give’n a part, but now you are the piece that fills the hole that’s in my heart.  Yes you are now the piece that fills the hole that’s in my heart.

But God gave me the grace to track you down, I payed your debts and brought you home to me.  And I don’t feel I lost a cent, I’d pay a million more, the love I feel allows me to be free.

So Gomer what I offer is my love and that is free, I hope you learn to love me in return.  I know that some day I will prob’ly have to die for you.  I will if that’s what you will need to learn.

That my love’s unconditional, I don’t count wrongs and rights, you cannot offer gifts enough to me.  I just want you to believe that my love’s pure for you, and hope that your love will be pure for me.  I hope that your love will be pure for me.

So hear me now, oh, flower of my life.  Hear me as I speak of love to you.  You’re not just an object in a tale to make a point, my love that’s grown is pure as gold and true.

I starter out an actor who God had give’n a part, but now you are the piece that fills the hole that’s in my heart.  Yes you are now the piece that fills the hole that’s in my heart.
