I Love You Lord

I Love You Lord

Songwriter: Laurie B. Klein

I love you, Lord
And I lift my voice
To worship You
Oh, my soul rejoice!
Take joy my King
In what You hear
Let it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear
We exalt You
Oh oh Lord
I love you, Lord

I have been singing this a lot lately. I love the story of how the lyrics of this song was composed. It’s short and simple but very sincere.

I just thought… When our flaws are exposed, people despise us. The thing is, they’re flawed, too. On the other hand, Jesus, who is flawless, sees our entirety–filth and all–and embraces us still. He who knows everything about us and has all the right to condemn does not. Instead, He restores. He receives us and leaves us clean, beautiful, confident, hopeful, assured, and loved.

No one will intentionally get to know us and pursue us the way God does. The Lord watches us and knows the tiniest details in our life. He knows what breaks our heart and what makes us dance in joy. No one else can love us like Jesus. Truly no one else satisfies.
