I Love You
I suffered, I bled, I gave up my life
Because of my great love for you
And with my dying breath I gasped out
“My child, I love you so.”
Do I not thirst in my soul to know you?
Do I not long for your heart?
Have I not wished for eternity long
My great love for you to impart?
I’ve held your name inside my thoughts
Since before the beginning of time
Have I not longed to envelop your soul
To hug you, and make your name mine?
My business is patching up shattered hearts
And giving you life to the full
I love to clear up sinner’s debts
Oh, will you not answer my call?
My dear, dear child, this choice is yours
And this new life is utterly free
I replenish, restore, rescue and redeem
How I’d love you to come to me.
