The day after Jahar’s capture, I remember putting my Underoath CD on in my car and immediately forwarding to track 10 — this song. It’s always reminded me of loving a non-Christian, but when listening to this song and thinking about Jahar, my favorite line, “Hey unloving, I will love you,” had an entirely new meaning. Especially since love is the only emotion in my heart I have ever felt so constant with him.
I always get chills during this verse, because for some reason, it reminds me of getting to heaven and seeing Jahar in the crowd of people:
“I swear I’ll know your face in the crowd,
And I’ll hear your voice so loud
When you’re whispering…”
And if I could sum up my prayers for Jahar during the last three months into one verse of song, it would be this one:
“Oh sweet angel of mercy with your grace like the morning
Wrap your loving arms around [him]…”
Hey unfaithful, hey ungraceful, hey unloving. I WILL LOVE YOU.
