Our First Love draws us near
Discovered, revealed in tearful moments
Secret, intimate times that awaken in the presence of God;
True love soars above the heavens
Reaches far beyond the world
Place of mere men and women.
Tender hands that cup the oceans
Gentle touch that reaches beyond the stars,
Beyond human imaginations
Creation as dust beneath the Savior’s feet.
In love He made life
Delights in a child before he’s formed in a woman,
Greatest pleasure in the beauty of an eternal daughter
Highest artistic love formed within and shown as a jewel without;
Then, a Spirit breath of powerful love flows from the Throne
And this spirit-soul is birthed
Overflowing from within the child’s being
As angels of the Heavenly Temple watch
And wait while the mysterious moment of new birth unfolds.
A Shepherd’s hand guides each small, wobbly step
Until the Gate of Heaven’s second birth can be seen,
Understood as well
Where eternity stands patiently with treasured salvation
The Hand of kindness holds out with favor the Gift of Life,
Free Gift of lasting love made clearly known
And a human life begins once more,
More than ever hoped for
As the Redeemer’s touch of highest love
Rests forever upon this delicate heart.
