That’s His Love for You, That’s His Love for Me

Love sweeter than berries ripened by sun kisses

Deeper than oceans deep

Stronger than trees that weep

Palms that sway in hurricane winds

That’s His love for you, that’s His love for me

Love that grows faster than fresh cut grass

And as infectious as a newborn baby’s laugh

That’s His love for you, that’s His love for me

He yearns for you from within

He desires for you to love Him only, completely

He died for you

He rose and lifted you up with Him

He knew before time began, that you would be His

His plans are grand

He holds you in his hand

He guides you

And asks you to freely receive

And yield to His will

That’s His love for you, that’s His love for me
