The Wonder of His Love

“Arise, My love, you’re free!”
His whispered words awoke

Hope as He said to me
“Rise from the dust — your chains are broke!”

Enslaved for all my life
By chains of fear and doubt.
Oppressed by pain and strife,
To Jesus I cried out

“Save me, Lord — Redeem me!”
“Fear not, My child, I’m here —
I’ll give you eyes to  see…
And wipe away each tear.”

“Cast your cares on Me, Love
Because I care for you.”
Amazed, I looked above —
It seemed too good to be true.


His words came out like thunder —
“For you I chose to die.”
I gazed on Him with wonder
“You died for me… But why?”

“You are precious in My sight,
My own special treasure.
My love exceeds all heights…
I love you beyond measure.”

As He speaks His love for me,
My heart overflows with love…
I think about His beauty
And the wonder of His love!

He Loves Me – I’ve Made My Choice!

My soul magnifies the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in Christ
For on His wings I have soared
“Come fly away with Me,” He enticed

“Come away, My beloved
“My treasure, My bride, beautiful one”
“But I am ugly – unloved!”
I wept as I said, “Lord I’m so undone!”

“I’ve borne your pain on My back
“The rejection and pain you received
“The fear and every attack
“I felt too, as you suffered and grieved”

“And I am always with you
“And My love will never let you go
“I’m here, if only you knew
“And My favor, on you I bestow”

“How can You love me?” I cried
“I’m dirty and ugly! I’ve cheated
“I’ve hurt You and shamed You, sinned and lied!”
“On My cross, it’s completed”

He said and He smiled, “Come dance
“My beloved and sing and rejoice!”
He ravished my heart with just one glance
He loves me – I made my choice!
