First Love

Lord,

return me to first love,

letting me remember

the joy of my salvation,

your grace and mercy

that drew and broke me,

drenching me with compassion

and loving kindness,

when I’ve done nothing

to deserve your love,

only always, humbly receiving.

I understand now,

it never stopped after salvation,

my need only grows for you,

your light exposing my heart,

your mercy reaching ever deeper depths,

your love ever taking more ground,

making me yours.

Take my heart,

my life, all of me,

and return me to first love,

to love you is what I’m made for.

I bless you Lord.

Amen.
