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.
