How do I Love you Lord?

Revered Poet Emily Dickenson once wrote,

“How do I love Thee? Let me count the ways.”

Well Lord Most High, how do I love you?

Let me lift your name in thankful praise.

How I so love you in the morning

When the sky is sea-blue and sun is brightly shining.

I also love you through the long and winding day

And when I am confused and don’t where I am going,

You ever so gently lead me the way.

I also love you even as the rain is softly strumming;

For I know there may be a rainbow later today.

I love you too when the sun is softly setting;

Although it hides below the horizon,

You promise never to leave but always stay.

I still remember Lord, how by grace you sent your

 Son Jesus even though I kept on sinning.

And you let him die to atone for my wicked ways.

Finally, Lord, I love you through the deep night when

 I am restless, weeping, or so vividly dreaming;

With love, you keep silent watch until once again, I wake.
