I love You because You loved me first

You loved more, more pure and Holy

I want You to be my only love

Lord, my God, take my heart;

My broken, lost, yearning heart

Deep within me, searching

For the pieces missing, my other part

Take it, seal it, in Your Heavenly courts above

Because truly it is Yours, deserving all my love

You poured Yourself out for me

When I was but an enemy

You opened Your loving arms wide

Offering a safe strong-tower for me to hide

How lovely You are, Lord, how loving You are

Broken for me, scarred, Your hands they were marred

You took the cross and carried all the weight

When You met fate face to face, You conquered death

Then You rose from the grave, gave us Your Spirit

Offering a seal upon my heart

You opened Your doors, Your heavenly doors, gave me a new start

Then I was called a friend, a child of God, a co-heir of Christ

And You poured Your selfless heart out for me

I love You because You loved me first

You loved more, more pure and Holy

I want You to be my only love
