You First Loved Me…by Carl Gooch

You First Loved Me
Lord, this heart beats only for you
Please take and keep it ever true.
Upon my heart you wrote your story
May each breath I take gives you glory
When I was unlovable, you loved me
You even came and died upon that tree
Before I even knew love, you loved me
And one day Lord, your face I will see
Lord, let this life reflect only you
May my actions show your love too.
You care for my soul and for my body
In your loving forgiveness I see mercy.
Because you first loved me, I know love;
My heart now overflows with your love.
When I was unlovable, you loved me
You even came and died upon that tree
Before I even knew love, you loved me
And one day Lord, your face I will see

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?.
