"What Love It Was
That Brought Thee Down"
What love it was that brought Thee down,
Down to the depths in which I lay,
That made Thee leave Thy glory-throne,
In Servant's form to tread Thy way;
Yet lower still to death to go,
That I might never judgment know.
My place is now in Thee above,
By virtue of Thy precious blood,
Before Thy Father's face in love,
Made now my Father and my God.
Oh! that my feeble voice might swell,
The praise of Him who loves so well.
'Tis love that cannot be explained,
It is too wonderful, too vast;
The heart of God alone contained,
Such thoughts divine in ages past.
But oh! I know it rests on me,
And will throughout eternity.
O fill me Lord yet more and more,
So that my heart e'en here below,
From Thy love's rich and boundless store,
Be satisfied and overflow.
Full with the blessing Thou hast given,
The foretaste now of what makes heaven.
1 John 3:1-2
Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us,
that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world
knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we
the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be:
but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him;
for we shall see him as he is.
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
What a beautiful poem. Only God knows the author who wrote it.
And really only God knows you-- everything about you. There is
a song that says, "He knew me, yet He loved me." How true that
is-- that we were sinners but Christ Jesus died for our sins. He took
our place upon the cross and paid the penalty for sin.
And Christ rose again. And as Believers, we are raised with
Christ Jesus-- Spiritually seated in the Heavenly places with Him.
And physically, we journey onward toward Heaven, with Jesus as
our Shepherd. Daily, we are learning more and more of the unmatchless
love of God. His mercies are new every morning and He does all things well.
He has saved us and called us out of darkness into His marvelous light!
1John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.
Heaven will be glorious because the Lord Jesus is there!
Blessed be the Lord!
