Why Do I Love You – LORD – Why –

Contemplating – I see why I love You –
While Your Power and Glory enchant me –
Your Wisdom teaches me –
Your Patience carries me –
But goodness – Yes – Your
Goodness captures me –
You love me –
How could you –
But You do –
You love me –

Crucifix on a WallContemplating – I see how much You love me –
How You published Your love on the cross –
Bore my shame – removed my blame –
Making me one with You –
Tucking me safely away
From all harm –
Such Blessed union –
Such charm –
No alarm
Startles me –
Snuggling here
You –

Golden HeartsWhy do I love You – LORD – it’s plain –
For me You were slain – Yet You live –
You give me the desires of my heart –
You lead me by the hand –
You never let me go –
You heal me –
You heal my
Family and
Friends – How
Could I
You –

Psalm 103:1-5 – The Bible (NIV) – Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
