This is how I love you

If I knew all of the pain I would have to face
And still somehow survive
You would be the only one I choose
Because this is how I love You

If I were offered
Every god and thing the world could offer
I would choose only You
Because this is how I love You

Every day I serve You
I strive for You
And the sweat of my brow runs down my face
Because this is how I love You

I read and I pray
I am devoted
Not out of duty
Because this is how I love You

When I fear
And have no hope
I trust You
Because this is how I love You

This road I’ve been lead upon
Has been far from easy
But I would do it over and over again
Because this is how I love You

I’ve become a fool for Your sake
I stand to lose everything for You
I’ve got nothing else to give
Because this is how I love You

I turn away my eyes and thoughts
From anything that distracts me from You
You are the only One
Because this is how I love You

I see the blessing
You have bestowed upon me
It leaves me only to praise You
Because this is how I love You

I will lift up my hands
Present this jar of clay
And sing for joy
Because this is how I love You

How can I express
The magnitude of my finite love
To such a wonderful God as You
Because this is how You love me, Jehovah Sabaoth

I cannot get away from You
Every direction I run
You always bring me back towards You
Because this is how You love me, Jehovah Shammah

I don’t know what lies
In my days ahead
Only the rays of Your hope
Because this is how You love me, Jehovah Jireh

When I cannot see
Even to make my next step
You light the way
Because this is how You love me, Jehovah Rohi

Your faithfulness is unfailing
Your mercy is sweetness to my lips
Your love is delicious
Because this is how You love me, Jehovah Shalom

You tear apart my heart
You rip from me my dreams
You break me in order to put me back together
Because this is how You love me, Jehovah M’kaddesh

You have loved me with a jealous love
Patient and enduring
Yearning to see the day that I return to You
Because this is how You love me, Jehovah Tsidkenu

Oh how I love You
Oh how You love me
With love that is unsearchable
Because this is how You love me, Jehovah Nissi

Love that is inescapable
Love that makes this withered heart flower
Love that mends a once shattered life
Because this is how You love me, Jehovah Rophe

El Shaddai, this is how You love me
