Why I Love You

I love You for Your warm sunshine
that lights my path each day,
For Your moon that shines at night
in the heavens far away.
Your twinkling stars that fill the sky
are breathtaking to see;
How You know them all by name
is a mystery to me.

When I consider all the things
Your mighty hand has brought,
My mind can't grasp the wonder
of the glories You have wrought.
Through all Your awesome works of art,
You're showing me Your love,
From creatures swimming in the seas
to those that soar above.

I love You for the animals
You made for company
And lovely birds that sing Your songs ~
in them Your joy I see.
The flowers, trees and grasses
are marvelous to behold;
In thousands of varieties
Your majesty unfolds.

I love You for these many things
You made for me to see,
But most of all, dear Father,
I love You for loving me.
I'm awed that You fashioned me
ere I saw the light of morn,
And crafted me in Your image
while I was yet unborn.

Amazed, I think of Calv'ry's cross
and how Your love shone through
When You died to bring forgiveness
and draw me close to You.
With falling tears I repent;
though I've been blind, now I see:
I can't live without You ~
I love You, for You first loved me.

"This is how God showed his love among us:
He sent his one and only Son into the world
that we might live through him...
This is love; not that we loved God,
but that he loved us and sent his Son
as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."
I John 4:9, 10 NIV
