God's Love #2


God’s love is like a candle bright
In a world full of darkness—it could bring hope and light
But God knew He couldn’t keep it to Himself alone
To the world His love must be made known
He called to the people, “Come bring your lives
Be lit with my love and be shining bright
My love is enough for all to share
It will never fade away and will always be there
Your lights are now lit so others you must find
Give them my love and light up their lives
When you see your light fading—come to me again
I’ll relight your light—I promised I’d share”
So with love as your light, into darkness you must go
Freely lighting others lives you meet along each day
God’s love will never weaken and He’ll never let it die
No matter how many lives are lit—He always has more to share!

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
