This song speaks about God's jealous, unyielding and relentless love for his people. It uses Song of Solomon 8:6 to describe Jesus' love for his bridegroom, the church, praying, "Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the Lord." (thanks, Dan - Chicago, IL)
