I Know What Love Is

I took a long, long time
In my mind I couldn’t understand.
I had to open this heart of mine
And follow His loves command.

Every hill and mountain I climb
Gives me strength to stand bolder.
His love is there time after time,
It is guiding me as I grow older.

I’ve known sorrow and pain
Now His forgiveness comforts me.
I’ve felt the sunshine and the rain,
Through it all He calls to me.

Now I know what love is
Grace and mercy He gave to me.
Now I know what love is
He showed it to me on Calvary.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
