How He Loves Us


He loves us in the rose’s generous bloom,
Her petals laid full open to our view;
He loves us in the wind’s silent caress,
gentle breeze soft upon our cheek.

He loves us in the sky’s brilliant blue,
The promise of a new sunlit day;
He loves us in the sunsets gilt-edged hue,
as a tender token at end of play.

He loves us in the night-time sky,
each star signalling to us in silent entreat;
Of a love, which burns in His heart-sick heart, and
with each turn of the earth, never ceases to beat.

Passion restrained with a gentlemen’s honour,
He loves us far more than we can perceive:
His jealous attentions showered upon us,
and yet the fullness of his love we could never receive.

He loves you each day that you open your eyes,
His gift of life another chance for Him;
To woo you in a thousand ways,
until all you can do in response is come.

Come, to know your needs satisfied, and
on His altar have all your yearnings laid.
Come, to know your dreams fulfilled,
to walk with Him for the length of your days.

So come to Him as to the marriage bed.
He wants you heart, body and soul – nothing spared.
We are his Bride, and at his side he would have us stand,
so come to Him – he has ‘your’ place prepared.

He loves you in the rose’s generous bloom,
Her petals laid full open to your view;
He loves you in the wind’s silent caress,
gentle breeze soft upon your cheek.

He loves you in the sky’s brilliant blue,
the promise of a new sunlit day;
He loves you in the sunsets gilt-edged hue,
as a tender token at end of play.

He loves you in the night-time sky,
each star signalling to you in silent entreat;
of a love which burns in his heart-sick heart, and
with each turn of the earth, never ceases to beat.
