Love {is} #2

 

Supermarket sweeping

Looking for love

Shelves of empty promises

Filling trollies with spurious claims

 

BUT

 

Love cannot be bought

Cannot be purchased in a buy one get one free promotion

 

AND

 

Love is not earned and cannot be taken away

True love from the author of creation

Is free not in a frenzied shopping spree

 

It is freely available

To all on this raggedy ann planet

God loves each one, equally – the same

And nothing

No nothing

Can change that eternal truth.

Love is the Sweetest Thing

Tell me You love me

Tell me it’s true

Tell me with rainbows

That make my heart sing

Tell me You love me

Tell me it’s true

That one such as me

Is loved by You

Faith moves mountains

You’ve moved many for me

Faith is believing

The unseen is here

Oh lord I believe

I believe You are here

I believe You are with me

And You love me so dear

Tell me You love me

Tell me it’s true

Tell me with moonbows

Whisper it sweetly

As the wind on my ear

Oh Lord I have hope

I have in the Christ

I have hope in tomorrow

I live for today

Oh tell me tomorrow

As You tell me today

As you told me before

Of the deepest love

Oh You loved the world

So much that You

Sent your son Jesus

To die for me

And if I have chosen

And indeed I do choose

To follow you dearly

To follow You true

And then I am cleaved

I’m attached to You Lord

And I will not perish

Because You died for me

Tell me You love me

Tell me it’s true

Tell me in rainbows

That God loves me too.
