Love runs so much deeper
Like the greater oceans beneath the Earth’s surface
And as many hidden rivers that roar;
True love embraces the human spirit
Tenderly wraps about the heart
With gentleness always upon the soul,
The body honored
Hands of kindness touch the human frailty;
Pure care given to the one so loved!
The eternal wealth of a human being
Valued as a vessel, a prized disciple of their Redeemer, their Lord;
Known as a friend, even as a lover
As a stranger or a foreigner far off,
True love generously gives and receives with thanksgiving.
All done with Holy Spirit wings of freedom
That glide as angels from the Throne Room,
Powerful inner discipline showered upon the earth,
Encouraging, settling in protective strength about another one so loved.
In quiet moments two or three drawn together
As servants of such love, rare wealth within
Though difficult to find,
This true love that runs much deeper than the soul
Steadfastness a gift, forgiveness lived out in hand with discernment
Learned from day to day
Grows as knowledge from above grows within,
Understanding of greater things in life through faith
Greater heavenly purposes revealed in hope
Greater lasting meaning in our lives as we walk His walk of love.
