These Humble Words
by louis gander 8/13/2012 / Christian Living
My Lord and Savior, hear my heart -
a heart that can't ignore,
Your love that chased me all my life
and proved to be much more...
Much more than rain drops from above
that fall from all around,
collecting in the ponds and lakes
and oceans that abound.
Much more than luscious meadows, green
where horses romp and play
much more than cool, clear bubbling brooks
where little ponies lay.
Much more than all the honey found
from bees that roam the hive,
much more than flowers from the plant
with petals bright, alive!
Much more than colors on the trees
in autumn's many hue,
of golden yellow, red and orange -
much more than rainbows too.
Much more than all the mountain peaks
that touch vast skies of blue
much more than questions I have asked
in prayers I've sent to You.
Much more than countless blessings from
Your miracles galore.
Much more than all my faithfulness.
But yet, You send me more.
Much more love that I waste on
such silly, selfish stuff.
Yet still, You send me greater love.
I can't love You enough.
Now may these humble words be passed
to everyone You touch,
so they, too, will have hearts to say,
"I love You very much."
Deuteronomy 6:5 (NASB)
5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
