How Do I Love Thee?



How do I love Thee?
Lord, I cannot count the ways.
Thou hast first loved me,
And cared for me all my days.
I was in Thy mind
Back before this world began.
Even before time,
Thou didst hold me in Thy hand.

How do I love Thee?
I love Thee more than my life.
In Thee, I am free
From selfish pursuits and strife;
Free to love Thee, Lord,
With all my heart, soul and mind;
Free to take Thy sword,
And share Truth with all mankind.

How do I love Thee?
There are no words to convey.
This love within me
Just grows deeper every day…
Deeper than the sea,
I could never count the ways…
How do I love Thee?
With an everlasting praise!


 “We love him, because he first loved us.”
“While I live will I praise the Lord:
I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.”
“I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
(I Jo 4:19: Ps 146:2; Ps 34:1)
