Love Letter


Dear God

Loving God, Creator of Heaven and Earth
What is it that you see in us?
Why do you even think we’re worth
Sending your beloved Son
To pay the price for everyone?

Your patience, love and forgiveness
Is way beyond my comprehension
Still You love me so,
With the many sins I have to mention

Thank you Lord, Thank you for the Precious Lamb
Who suffered more than I will ever understand
With your blood you wash away my sins
Those evil, ugly, wicked sins
You look upon with such disgust
With my weak flesh and devilish lust

But even after each offense
You’ll forgive if I repent
So Sweet Jesus, today I come
and I just want to say
Thank you for all you have done
And though I know I can never pay back enough
In my heart I love you much

Inside my soul Your Spirit lives
A new person in Christ the world I give
And pray that they might see the change in me
So that those still lost will be set free

I thank you for the passion shown
The greatest love this planet has known
So today I’m sending my Love Letter
With thanks for making this world better

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
