I love you more day by day

Filed under: Poems — Celia Rexselin @ 10:26 pm

Had to attend a wedding of a very close friend of mine. The short stay at her place was pleasant filled with sweet memories. I have always known her as a sweet friend, correcting sister and a good prayer mate, but this time I discovered the poet in her. Thought I will blog the song which she had written and sang on her engagement day!! and so praise God for her….. with her…

Brought up in the light of His love from childhood,
I still didn’t accept his love for me,
I never used to go to church
With a heart to seek Christ,
But one day, the Lord touched me,
And showed me that He loved me
More than anyone could.

Jesus, I love you more day by day,
Jesues, I love you more than words could say,
In times of distress, you made me gay
And yes, Lord, You are the potter, I’m the clay.

Lord, I need your love everyday,
I know that only your love supports me,
Even through the hard times
Your love guides me through;
It keeps no record of wrongs;
Rejoices with the truth
Lord, teach me your love that’s pure.

When I needed your soft touch,
You gave me your love,
You held me by your hand, O Lord!
And took me thro’ my test
And brought out a humble me,
Gold refined by fire
Your love never fails.

When I never trusted,
You gave me a mind to believe,
You trusted me though I never
Paid heed to you
Help me not to lean on
My own understanding
Lord, teach me the love that trusts.

Though I lived a hopeless life
All along your love searched me
Found a new hope for me in you
The hope that was built on you
It helped me lead a new life
A life that glorifies you,
Lord, teach me the love that hopes..
