MY LOVE STORY FOR YOU (Song Lyrics)

cute kids playing in zoo a baby girl sitting on giraffe vector

Don’t you know that before you were, I knew you
Don’t you know that I heard your very first cry
Your name was already etched in My story
And the days of your life, before Me did fly

I wove you with unfailing cords of My love
And whispered, you are special and meant to be
Before you left heaven’s protective dark pool
I poured in strength and the will to live, freely

Chorus
I was marred beyond recognition
I was marred with the deep stripes of sin
At the cross I died so you could live
And your lost heart for My Father, win

Look around at the beauty that surrounds you
Know that you’re beautiful, so beautiful too
The mirror and others may say otherwise
But they don’t understand your heart like I do

Don’t ever think you’re just passing through this land
Merrily, merrily, peace, peace and more peace
And one day ‘twill be over, yes finally
Because soon there will come a time of release

Chorus
I was marred beyond recognition
I was marred with the deep stripes of sin
At the cross I died so you could live
And your lost heart for My Father, win

Here is My love story, I wrote just for you
Listen closely to the words, let them enter
They are filled with My pure love everlasting
Let them enter, they will feed, clothe and shelter

And as you read and wonder where is the love
There’s only mention of cruel death on the cross
Remember I formed you, brought you forth with love
Through the cross, there’s new life for you in My loss

Chorus
I was marred beyond recognition
I was marred with the deep stripes of sin
At the cross I died so you could live
And your lost heart for My Father, win
