LOVE (Song Lyrics)

nice flowers

Chorus
You filled my heart to overflowing
With Thy wondrous love for me
Called me out from every darkness
Helped me in obedience, be

You are love
It’s where my love is
I can only but love You
Because You first loved

You called me
And opened my ears
I heard You call me by name
Sweetness to my heart

You found me
In my brokenness
And as hands of love reached in
I was lifted free

Chorus
You filled my heart to overflowing
With Thy wondrous love for me
Called me out from every darkness
Helped me in obedience, be

You gave love
Cast all fear away
Breathed Your eternal life in
Died so I could live

This is love
Emptied out for me
The beauty of holiness
I’ll forever praise

Love, O love
Two hearts beat as one
This rose has found her garden
Crowned with thorns of love

Chorus
You filled my heart to overflowing
With Thy wondrous love for me
Called me out from every darkness
Helped me in obedience, be

BECAUSE I NEEDED YOU (Song Lyrics)

I wrote these lyrics for you, my dear husband. Yes, you were sent to me because I needed you … I still do … and I always will. Happy 32nd Wedding Anniversary from the depths of my heart.

A long time ago
Such long times gone past
Seasons that I knew
So many places
So many faces
And then came you, you

Chorus
Oh! You came to me when I needed you
You came to an empty heart such as mine
Life from the past had left a hole so blue
Your heart was sent to my heart to entwine

All through the summers
Heat which took my breath
Shadows that I knew
Searching for shelter
Dry heart (a)swelter
And then came you, you

All through the autumns
Leaves aglow with change
Sadness that I knew
Coolness of night air
Hard burden to bear
And then came you, you

Chorus
Oh! You came to me when I needed you
You came to an empty heart such as mine
Life from the past had left a hole so blue
Your heart was sent to my heart to entwine

All through the winters
Even without snow
Numbness that I knew
Watching time go by
Hearing my heart’s sigh
And then came you, you

All through the springtimes
New hope (a)calling
Fragrance that I knew
A love harmony
Sudden melody
’Cause along came you

Because I needed you
Needed another beat
Songs of my heart were lost
You came, now I’m complete
You came, now I’m complete

Chorus
Oh! You came to me when I needed you
You came to an empty heart such as mine
Life from the past had left a hole so blue
Your heart was sent to my heart to entwine

I LEFT MY HEART BEHIND (Song Lyrics)

colorful roses bouquest vector

All the years we’ve been together
I’ve been unable to love you
Love you as I truly should have
Love as only a loved heart can
Hard to do when it’s bound in time
Fighting hard against God’s best plan

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

Each time it hurt and joy suppressed
When those memories came to haunt
I’d hide so very deep inside
Not caring for who I now am
So when love, it came a-calling
It brought me forth as God’s own lamb

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways

Tears, they can no longer threaten
To wash and diminish the pain
My new heart can now receive yours
Don’t emotionally pull away
Our two hearts bound eternally
’Cause this love’s heart is here to stay

Chorus
I’m so very sorry
I left my heart behind
I left it in the past
Each beat left to unwind
But this heart is thawing
Life’s sunshine spreads its rays
Each beat can now rejoice
Safe in His healed ways
