Today... 'Lover'

My Lord is the greatest Lover
He has loved me like no other.
My Lord, my Love, was Crucified
to save my soul He bled and died.

I am loved with everlasting love
By the One from heaven above
Such great love to me He has shown
Giving His life my love to own

Greater love there could never be
Than the love He has shown to me
Such sacrificial love was His
I don't deserve such love as this

For this my Lover is God's Son
The Altogether Lovely One
I'm my Lovers and He is mine
He is so Handsome and Divine

In his mouth is sweetness and life
And He desires us for His wife
'Arise my darling', He says, 'Come'
'My beautiful one, come on home'

The room was filled with sighs and coos
As His Belovéd the Lover woos
And words of love speaks to her there
embracing her in tender care

In His love He suffered and bled
'I'll never let you go' He said
Unbounded love to her was shown
when He died to make her his own

Day by day they walked hand in hand
Moving towards the promised land.
Then as she breathed her final breath
They walked together the Vale of Death

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting
an aspect of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
