The Sweeter than Wine lyrics is inspired by Song of Solomon 1:2: “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine”.
2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.Song of Solomon 1:2
This verse in Song of Solomon reminds me of another verse in 1 John
19 We love because he first loved us.1 John 4:19
Jesus’ love is sweeter than wine, better than life.
Sing this song to the Lord and focus on His love.
Tell Him you know of His unending love, you know how much He treasures you. How precious you are.
Tell Him you know He will never leave you. He will keep you safe and secure in His arms forever.
Even if you don’t feel it. Even if you don’t think you deserve it. His love is sweeter than wine. Receive it!
