I Will Always Love You, Mom

I will always love you, Mom
No matter how far away
It doesn’t matter how long
No matter what some may say

You are the mother God chose
And I will love and respect
The love that you gave — God knows
As I look back and reflect

Mama, I miss you so much
Though it’s been only a week
And though I long for your touch
Comfort in Christ I will seek

Mama, I fervently pray
While in this world I still roam
That we’ll meet again one day
When my Lord Christ calls me home

Mom, your work is completed
It’s time to go to your rest
With Christ, you’re not defeated
I’ll always love you — be blessed!

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!
