I love you


I love you, Lord,
With all my strength,
But you deserve
Much more. 

I love you, Lord,
With all my mind,
But you deserve
Much more.

I love you, Lord,
With all my heart,
But you deserve
Much more.

I love you, Lord,
With all my soul –
And I can do
No more.



You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind (Luke 10:27; NLT).

Give to the Lord the glory he deserves! (1 Chronicles 16:29; NLT).

As your name deserves, O God, you will be praised to the ends of the earth (Psalm 48:10; NLT).



Less and more

“My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed (John 20:28; NLT).


Help me to think less about myself,
And more of others;

Less of saying what I want,
And more of listening;

Less of getting what I want,
And more of giving;

Less of doing what I want,
And more of serving;

Less, much less, about myself
In every way,

And more, much more, of you,
My Lord, my God.



More of God

Put on your new nature, created to be like God – truly righteous and holy (Ephesians 4:24; NLT).

Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16; NIV).

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

Dear Lord,
May there be less of me,
With all my faults
And weaknesses,

And more of you within me
Every day,
Until I reunite with you
In death.



More and less

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; NIV).

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged” (Matthew 7:1-2; NLT).

Love your neighbour as yourself” (Luke 10:27; NLT).


May I rejoice more,
And repine less;

Pray more,
And neglect you less;

Thank you more,
And forget less;

Love more,
And judge less.

In Jesus’ name,


More and less
