How Much Do I Love You?

How Much Do I Love You? Christian Poem and eCard written by Caroline Gavin Christian Life Coach of Purposeful Pathway

“…that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory…” Ephesians 3:17-21

How much do I love you?

This, My child, you ask of Me.

How much do I love you?

Child, I love you infinitely.


Do you see the stars

Shining in the heavens above?

Innumerable they are,

Yet vaster is My love.


Do you see the leaves

Donning the many trees?

Can you imagine the drops

That fill the many seas?


Beyond comprehension

Are both to the mind;

Yet far greater is My love,

Indeed this you will find.


Can you feel the sun

Warming you and the earth?

Yet far warmer is My love,

Love that gives rebirth.


Can you smell the fragrance

Of flowers in the spring? 

Yet far more fragrant is love

Of your Savior, your King.


Can you count the sand grains

Carpeting the ocean shore?

Countless they are to you,

Yet I love you even more.


The love for your own children,

Does it not beat strong?

Yet far greater is My love,

Far more wide, deep and long.


The best way to show My love

Is on the Cross of Calvary;

There I shed My blood for you

As I died upon the tree.


Like a lamb before its shearer

To the slaughter I was led;

Because I love you so, child,

My blood for You I shed.


Not one drop of blood

Did I withhold from you;

I poured of Myself completely

That your life I would renew.


A thorny crown I wore,

My hands and feet pierced with nails;

Do you see the depth of My love?

Over all it prevails.


Yet, as I suffered,

I thought of you, child, with love;

I prayed for mercy and grace

To stream to you from above.


How much then do I love you?

Child, I love you infinitely.

If ever you forget how much,

Come to Me here on Calvary.
