Poem of Love

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.

~ 1 John 3:1

I try to write a poem of love,
To thee my Holy Father.
I try to write and let you know,
But my words seem to falter.

That you adopt me as your own,
And as I am, give love.
You make me worthy to approach
Your heavenly throne above.

I cannot speak about my love,
Because it’s yours, not mine.
And any love that I possess,
Yours given all the time.

A love I cannot comprehend,
I cannot even measure.
You sent your precious gift for me,
And given me the treasure.

He took the whip, the crown of thorns.
He chose the path of pain,
And willingly laid down His life,
And as a lamb was slain.

Rise up, and let me come Oh Lord,
To lay upon your altar.
My pathetic love for you
Is all I have to offer.

Any good you find in me,
Is Jesus Christ my Savior,
So all myself I give to you
And love words for your favor.

You make me feel that my attempt,
A masterpiece of credit.
You take my gift with eyes of love,
And do not even edit.

Holy, Holy, Holy drumming,
Beating in my heart.
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord,
God, how great thou art!

Amen.
