Because You Love Me

I’m nobody
But I’m somebody
Because you love me


The whole world

Every one of us
Ensnared engulfed
Imprisoned
Condemned
Lost in sin
We were
Without hope
Until You
What a Savior
You are
You were
You always will be
Jesus Son of God
Who paid the awful price
The only sacrifice
Acceptable
For sin
Your blood
Shed for all
Yes for all you died
For all were condemned
No favorites played
For all you gave
Your life
You set aside the barrier
You broke the walls
You alone so
All that trust in you
May live and love
May dwell with you
Forevermore
I’m nobody
Yet were I the
Only one
I’d have cost you
Every drop of blood
The price the same
Was every drop for all and
Every drop for one
I’m nobody
But I’m somebody
Because you love me

      • Greetings to you, Chloe. Thank you for visiting and for your comment. I make typos all the time. Thank you for your comment. I agree with you entirely. We are as many as the grains of sand, yet he knows how many hairs there are on each one of our heads and how we feel each moment.

    Carol Ann–
    lovely, and just what I needed to read this morning…
    in a God thing that happens each day, at 3:16pm every after noon, I find myself checking the time…and I always think of John 3:16, but I put my name in there…
    “For God so loved Jane that He gave His only begotten son…”
    it’s a centering moment in my day…to know that I am His beloved.
