I HAVE LOVED YOU

Long ago the Lord said to Israel: “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.
Jeremiah 31:3

Through trials and heartache
You’ve held my hand
When I doubted
You helped me to stand

Your Word sustained me
And kept me alive
And yet my flesh continued to strive

In the midst of my tears
The debilitating fears,
I hid in the shadows,
Afraid to come out
Lest others would see
all my hypocrisy

“Do You love me, Lord?
I tried to believe, I’m so imperfect,
How could it be?

Then little by little,
He captured my heart,
His love tore the walls down,
That had kept us apart.

I love You, Lord,
Your love is boundless
And everlasting,
Your Love laid upon the tree,
has set me free
