I never knew the meaning of love
Until you filled my heart with your love
I never knew how beautiful you are
Until I gazed into the serenity of the moon
And sat with you in tranquil silence
I never knew how bright your truth was
Until the darkness of my life was dispelled
And the breath of your life was inhaled
I never believed in the promises of the saints
Until you revealed to me the beauty of salvation
And the sanctification of all who believe
I never knew how lost I was
Until you snatched me from the debris of sin
And laid me on your breast
I never knew how much you cared
Until I saw how much I hurt you with my actions
And saw the tears you had in your eyes for me
I never knew the beauty of the word
Until I met you headlong-in the Word
And knew you were made flesh to dwell among us
Though the days may be long gone
I know that they are but like an hour to you
Though the tears may sometimes fall
I know that you will wipe them away
Though I seek to justify these mercies
I know that I could never earn them
Because all you ask of me
Is that I simply accept you
And be drawn into the love of your mercies.
Because the one that I serve, the one that imprisons me
Has granted me a second stay in eternity
May these words (sermons), from various men and women of God be a blessing to all.
