Brandon Heath, “Love Does”

Contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Brandon Heath has followed up the Top 10 hit Jesus in Disguise with another midtempo track, Love Does. When I first heard Jesus in Disguise, I thought it was all right, but it didn’t really grab my attention. And well, Love Does. Heath’s sophomore single from Blue Mountain is a catchier single with a great chorus and a soaring bridge, and its message of hope for people who are serving as salt and light will certainly speak to an audience often ignored by Christian songwriters in favor of the wider audience. I, for one, was very encouraged, and for that, I’m grateful for Heath and Love Does.

LOVE DOES Lyrics
Brandon Heath

This one goes out to the world changer
Shining your light in the face of danger
Oh, tell us what you know
You’re a saint, you’re a son, you’re a promise keeper
Bottom of the well, still digging down deeper
Oh, how far you gonna go

Chasing down hope
Moving on dreams
Taking that path
Maybe it’ll lead you home
Maybe it won’t

Nobody knows why your heart is broken
Nobody cries while your prayers are going up
But Love does
Nobody walks on the road you’re paving
Nobody sees all the souls you’re saving
Oh, but Love does
Love does
Love does

This is for the one on the front line fighting
Ringing that bell over everybody
Oh, tell us what you know
Knocking down doors in the midnight alley
Looking for a life in a desert valley
Oh, how far you gonna go

Chasing down hope
Moving on dreams
Taking that path
Maybe it’ll lead you home
Maybe it don’t

You are a renegade
You’re an outlaw of Love’s crusade
And they don’t know who you are
They don’t know
They don’t know
But Love does
I’m telling you, Love does

Somebody knows
Somebody cries
Somebody feels
Love does
Somebody walks
Somebody sees
Somebody knows
Love does
