This God We Ought to Love

 More messages of God and Love here 
and here

This God we ought to love
Because He loved us first
Seems to be pushed way back in line
By other gods death-cursed

This God we seek to love
In ways hard to express
Knows our heart of heart and thus
Knows what we should confess

This God we yearn to love
But fumble in our reach
Forgives, His love is strong enough
To test and try and teach

This God is grace and love
And pleads on our behalf
Through Jesus Christ we can be saved
From death’s eternal wrath

This God is Love supreme
No other god can boast
A love so great that it saves souls;
Redemption’s uttermost

This God of gods is love
Though oft perceived unjust
He knows and calls each one by name
For He created us

For this great God of love
For all our shame and sin
Desires our love so we
May learn to love like Him
