I love you, my child, in the morning.
My love is not quelled by the night.
I love you when you’re in the valley,
or scaling the highest of heights.
I love you when flowers are blooming.
I love you in showers of rain.
I love you when winter is looming
and when summer comes again.
Though sometimes your skies have been grey
or you have been misunderstood,
My love has been present always;
My thoughts towards you are good.
You may have felt strong in the good times
and then have felt weak in the bad.
Perhaps you have tried but failed,
then felt all alone and sad.
You may feel that I’m far away
or wonder if I hear your prayers.
My heart is so touched by your longings.
Each day, I bottle your tears.
I love you, for you’re My creation.
I think about you every day.
I long to bring life and salvation –
to guide you and show you the way.
I long to pour fresh living water
that flows out in life-giving streams;
to arise upon you with My glory,
for then you will dream new dreams.
I’ll not force My way into your heart.
I come through an open door.
I long to bring untold blessings
of life and of peace evermore.
