For the children who love you
Even more love given
From Heaven’s bountiful storehouse
The place of unending love
Where treasures and riches and jewels all sing praise
Beautiful melodies of worship adorn
More exquisite temple beauty thrives
More intense, more vibrant kingdom love grows;
Angels gather about the Throne of delight
Without number, yet each well known
The heart of the most Royal King freely given
Shown more, expressed as radiated light
The power, the precious stones of this love
Gem stones carried as High Priest close to his heart
His joy, His pleasure in His own.
The God who is love, desires even more
Yearns for each one to fully know
Cares for all the billions of others,
Those not yet born.
The heart that once flowed with red
Body cuts dripping red from head to feet
The obedience, the suffering, the mystery,
Broken for all, burst for each one
Water mixed with bitter distress
Baptism for one, the same for all.
Father for His Son, Son for His Father
God for His world, His most intimate creation
Purest love poured out from eternity
Rain from Heaven
Gift of living water fallen upon dry Earth
Streams into rivers
Rivers into oceans
All teem with new life
Ocean currents of this love shown on the Cross,
As complete desire for His own
Finished work of yearning for His unique loved ones.
The measureless Universe expands constantly
As the true heart of love grows even more.
“Love God, Love yourself, Love your neighbor…maybe even an enemy.”
