Because I Love You
Little child, so dear to Me:
Please listen to My words.
The world you see is full of sun,
Of treees, of play, and birds;
But I have seen much farhter
Than you will ever see.
I built the line 'tween right and wrong -
But no one created Me.
I am in your future
And in your past I AM.
While you were dead in your own ways,
I was sacrificed as thy Lamb.
You may wonder, darling child, -
Apple of My Eye -
Why I tell you all of this,
Any why I chose to to die?
My child, you cannot understand;
You cannot get a view
Of how very very very much
Very much I love you.
You are my heartstrings, my every thought
Is concerned with your own good.
And while your love sometimes wanders,
My love never could.
I cannot wait to bring you Here
And save you hurt and pain;
But inless you learn to die to self,
My peace you'll never gain.
This may seem harsh, but trust Me, child:
I only want the best
For you. And if you come to Me
I promise you'll find rest.
