Verse 1
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

Chorus
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

Verse 2
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

Bridge:
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

Song Story - Why Reckless Love?

Reckless love really is the song of my whole life that phrase kind of dropped in my heart about 5 years ago. I just started experiencing the kindness of the Father, the goodness of the Father in a way that I'd never experienced before. So that phrase the overwhelming never-ending reckless love of God was just kind of lodged in here I didn't know what to do with it.

One night I woke up he was probably you know three in the morning and I had the full melody for that chorus. I grabbed my iPhone and I ran in the closet and I closed the door and I sang it into my iPhone and the next day. I just sat down at the piano and just kind of pounded out the whole chorus and then I got together with my buddy, Caleb Culver and we just started hashing out the verses, talking about you know Adam in the garden before he'd done anything to earn the father's affection. The father looked at Him and said over him, you are very good.

we just sort of went with that theme. you know so when I was your enemy still your love fought for me. When what I felt no worth, You paid it all for me.

[Music]

A lot of people have asked why I used the word reckless to describe God. I see the love of God as something wild, insane, crazy. The way that he pursues, the way that he chases us down, the way that he loves. I believe is reckless and so we were going after that really furious sort of violent language to speak of the nature of the love of God that it never backs down, it doesn't give up. Jesus came to seek and save the lost because, no my love is crazy my love comes as a baby and dies on a cross the most foolish thing you could possibly imagine that the reckless love of God says "I will stop at nothing to have your heart and to get you face to face and say this is who I am. I'm good I'm kind and faithful." He does everything in his power to do that his love is wild, His love is reckless.
