A Song - I Love You Because You First Loved Me

Author:

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

a-song-i-love-you-because-you-first-loved-me

Composer's Foreword

The bible says we are not the one who first loved God, He is the one who first loved us. It is because of his love for us that he decides to do what he did for us, dying for our sins.

This great love demonstrated by God beats me hollow, therefore I have composed this song to bless the Holy One of Israel.

Thank you.

Composed Song

Leader

You came to world

Put on body of flesh

To save the world

That's why you came to the world

Chorus


Leader

You endur'd ridicule

By humans you created

For you focused your eyes

Just to save work of your hand

Chorus


Leader

Your gaze is focused

On the glory ahead

Saving humanity

From curse of sin and death

Chorus


Leader

When clays are fighting

Rejecting the Potter

Yet your longsuffering

Elastic limit is not 'xceeded

Chorus


Leader

Special love

Is your love to humanity

I love you Father

'Cause you first loved me

Chorus


Leader

You were arrested

Tortured and detained

Clothes thorned

Nakedly were dragged to the jurists

Chorus


Leader

Your handiworks

Sitting on judgment seats

To judge you

Condemning the Creator

Chorus


Leader

You were beaten

Crowned with thorns and briers

Your body was Peirce's

Blood and body fluids lost

Chorus


Leader

Dragged to Golgotha

Where you were nailed

You werekilled

Alongside with the sinners

Chorus


Leader

Your love yea

Is a matchless love

For the Potter

Is killed yea by his handiwork

Chorus


Leader

You have died

To save humanity

A friend dying

For friends not worth dying for

Leader

By your death

Humanity has been saved

By your blood

We overcame the devil

Chorus


Leader

A matchless King

Showing matchless love

A matchless love

Breeds a matchless grace

Chorus

My glorious God

I 'll keep praising you

I love you, Father

'Cause you first loved me

Chorus
