Saturday Song: Lavish Love, Abundant Beauty

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. I John 3:1

1.) Lavish love, abundant beauty,

Gracious gifts for heart and hand,

Life that fills the soul and senses —

All burst forth at your command.

Lord, our Lord, Eternal Father,

Great Creator, God and Friend,

Boundless power gave full expression

To Your love which knows no end.

2.) Who am I that you should love me,

Meet my every need from birth?

Why invest Yourself so fully

In a creature made of earth?

In Your loving heart You planned me,

Fashioned me with greatest care;

Through my soul You breathed Your Spirit,

Planted Your own image there.

3.) I am Yours, Eternal Father,

All my body, mind and heart.

Take and use me to Your glory,

Form Yourself in ev’ry part.

Lord, You love brings joy and gladness

Flowing forth within my soul.

May my very breath and being

Rise to You, their source and goal.

About Katiehttps://thoughtsong.wordpress.comI like to dabble in writing out thoughts on scripture and life events.  Music, to me, is a dear friend, the structure that organizes my thoughts, and the feelings of my heart. Most of my time, however, is spent Teaching and Homemaking (especially trying to create hygge and live as a gluten-free baker). Take all these things away and I still have my true identity: I'm a sinner saved by grace and who dearly loves the Savior who first loved her. And that's really all that matters.
