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 your love is better than wine.Song of Solomon 1:2 WEB
This verse in Song of Solomon reminds me of another verse in 1 John
19 We love him, because he first loved us.1 John 4:19 WEB
Jesus’ love is sweeter than wine, better than life. Focus on His love.
I know His unending love, I know He treasures me. How precious I am. I know He will never leave me. He will keep me safe and secure in His arms forever.
Even if I don’t feel it. Even if I don’t think I deserve it. His love is sweeter than wine. Receive it!
