Learning to love


How far does Your love towards us extend?
I wonder if it knows or has an end.
And why would You even begin to care
about unrighteous man when You are fair?

I look at myself and I wonder why
a God who has never once told a lie
would bother with such a deceitful one,
ever ready to forgive what I’ve done.

I cannot begin to fathom such love
bestowed on a lowly man from above.
I thank You from the bottom of my heart
for always giving me a fresh new start.

I know I do not always do my best,
and sometimes I seem to use too much zest,
but through all of it Your patience prevails,
teaching me anew what true love entails.
