All-year long we get wrapped up in our day-to-day lives.  Let's just take a moment on this day of the year to remember just how much God loves us.

I found heard a song today called "Beautiful Scandalous Night" performed by Leigh Nash and Bebo Norman.  I'd love to share the lyrics with you but I can't don't own the album and can't get in touch with the lyricist just yet.  But you can buy or sample the song on Amazon.  I do however have a poem of my own to share with you.

A Greater Love Than Mine

Picture
I have always said it before,
And I believed it was true
That my love of God was more
Than it could be for you

I looked at your dark green eyes
My faith revealed as a lie

I held you once and couldn't
And if God asked I wouldn't

I could not would not give you away
I'd give my life so you could stay

The way a father loves his son
From when his life is just begun

Only the strongest could let him go
Someone who loved another so

A greater love than mine

Now, God searched all through the land
And found a man and his wife
He called the man Abraham
Blessed her with a newborn life

But, laughter soon became a cry
When God told him the child must die

"Love me more than all others
Even Sarah the boy's own mother"

Because this love and faith had he
He children would always be free

The way a father loves his son
From when his life is just begun

Only the strongest could let him go
Someone who loved his Lord God so

A greater love than mine

The promise was fulfilled
That God made long ago
He ransomed Israel
With His Son that He loved so

I'm sure he wept upon the cross
For all of His children, helplessly lost

There must be a sacrifice
Only His blood could pay the price

And so He died to set us free
His Son He gave, for love of me

The way the Father Loved His Son
From when all time had just begun

Only the strongest could let him go
The Lord above who loved me so

A greater love than mine

And so He died to set us free
His Son He gave, for love of me

A greater love than mine
