“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.” (1 John 3:1)


Lavished in love

I am by You,

Yes, lavished in love,

Love so true,



From head to toe, 

In all I hear and see, 

Today, tomorrow, 

Through all eternity,



In sunrays streaming 

Through golden clouds above, 

O Sweet Lord Jesus, 

I am lavished in love…



You kiss my heart 

With Your tender grace 

You light my steps 

With Your smiling face,



You inspire my heart 

With psalms to sing, 

You touch my life 

With endless blessing.



So how can I feel

Anything but loved by You

In all that I am,

Through all that I do?



My heart bursts 

Your love to receive, 

How wondrous in You 

To freely believe!


So I will sing 

With eyes on You above, 

With a heart of gladness 

Bursting with love,




With all I am,

With all I will be, 

Today, tomorrow, 

Throughout eternity…




Yes, with love so pure, 

Love so true… 

Because lavished in love, 

I am by You!

    Yuck! I think I’ll stick with the Gospel of John; internet doggerel just isn’t the same.
