Lyrics of Love

Updated on May 24, 2012

Literature: The immortality of speech,

My choice to appreciate you forever.

Your patience for my imperfections

Shows there’s no excess in love.

Because of you, life becomes a banquet.

Everyday you lavish me with gifts!

At my excitements, I wonder why me?

I summoned my wisdom,

I invited my understanding.

My knowledge could not wait,

When I turned my mind to it.

Stepping into their light,

I saw the crystal of your love;

Pure and genuine; your heart fondling my life.

Alone with you in our precious garden,

Inside the blanket of your affections,

Under the shadow of your might;

There I came, looking for a future

Until you quiet me with your love,

I never knew you are my future.

Without your love, my life is empty.

Your love letters I kept jealously,

With pleasure, I recite them day ‘n’ night.

From this fountain, I drink life itself.

When I say you are close to me,

This is what it means to me;

You are in your word, your word is you.

So I take a bit of you everywhere I go.

I’ve heard this song before,

But I’ve never listen with my heart,

Now I understand the lyrics of love

As I listened to those children singing:

‘I love Jesus x2

He’s my friend x2

He will never leave me x2

He’s my friend x2'
