You won't relent
Until You have it all
My heart is Yours

I'll set You as a seal upon my heart
As a seal upon my arm
For there is love that is as strong as death
Jealousy demanding as the grave
And many waters cannot quench this love

Come be the fire inside of me
Come be the flame upon my heart
Come be the fire inside of me
Until You and I are one

    Bible says god's name is jealous, he wants all of our heart to the point we can say " i and the father are one", that are intimacy with jesus is so evident that people will a person that has been confirmed into the exact image, or likeness of jesus, and our heavenly father won't relent until he has removed all the dross from our lives! Lord's will be done, amen

    Relent means to totally abandoned or even become less severe as in weather or a battle and since he owns everything, this means he owns my heart. What she is saying is,"please take it back. Fight for me! I don't want my heart to belong to me. "-- a seal is not a tattoo or a reminder but it's a symbol that there is only one who can break that seal and have the contents inside. She is asking again that he take it from her. She is asking, "father, please don't let me inside my own heart. " biblically speaking the heart is the place of thought--our mind, and the arm is our strength. She again is asking what god cannot give--that is, that he take it from her with jealousy. He died for it, now she wants him to kill for it. The waters of grace are not enough to ease the pain of one missing her lover when it's this fierce.
    I know what she is asking because i have prayed it. "father, you have created me to be a free-choice-agent, by free choice, i ask you please take all options, opinions, desires and loves of this world from me and kill the enticement of the enemy forever. Set fire to my heart until it totally engulfs my entire being. Burn away this flesh forever. " and god being true to his word, cannot do it. We must fight the flesh ourselves.
    Great writing everyone. Keep running children! It's not much longer. Do not grow faint or weary! I love every one of you.

    I sing this song a bit differently. I sing it as if it's me (the Christ child) singing to Him (Jesus.) It can be used as a marriage song referring to bride and groom, but I do not think that was the original intent of this song.

    Relent defined: to agree to do or accept something you have been resisting or opposing; to become less determined.
    It's me saying. "I won't relent (I will never stop inviting you in to me and I will never stop agreeing for you to come into me or I will never become less determined for you to take over all of me) until you (God) have it all (all of me, my heart, my desires, my mind, my will, my emotions, my strength all for Your will and Your Glory.) My heart is yours (is God's, to do with as He wants. I surrender all of me to Him)."

    Seal defined: a secure closure that must be broken to be opened and that thus reveals tampering; a symbol or mark of office; tight and perfect closure (as against the passage of gas or water.)
    I set you as a seal upon my heart (Nothing can get through or penetrate my heart, which is filled only with those things that are of You. My heart is guarded and protected by You and Your seal.)
