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.

Less and more

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

 

Lord,
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.
