…This I Know

“Jesus loves me! this I know”
- Anna B. Warner
 
Draw me in, Lord. Pull me closer
So I’ll better hear
Your voice, so sweet, so still and gentle,
Not just in my ear
But deep within my longing heart
Where Your own Spirit dwells.
For there I hear my Shepherd’s voice –
How tenderly it tells
Me just how much You love me, Lord;
And who I am to You –
Not just another stubborn sheep
(Though yes, I am that, too);
But also Your beloved child,
In whom, Lord, you delight.
You take me up into Your arms,
And there You hold me tight
Until I feel that I am loved
Far more than I can know.
I smile way down deep within
Each time You tell me so.
 
 
“I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.”
Jeremiah 31:3 NIV
