Ode To My Father’s Love

Lord, I’m overwhelmed by your love.

You’ve given me beauty for ashes.

How do I put into words what you’ve done for me?

Your love is an ocean I float in. It’s endless. It’s beyond the horizon; farther than the eye can see.

Your love is a river floating gently and endlessly.

Your love is a canyon, plunging deeper than I can see.

You’re creating beauty, beauty. You’ve made beautiful things for me.

How can I tell the world what you’ve done for me? Words can’t express. Just make me love for others to see.

Make me the river. Make me the sea. Make me your love for the world to see. Your pure, endless, righteous love shining through me.

God, you’re so good to me. You’re so good to me.

1 John 1:3 | “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God. And that is what we are!”
