The best love for the Lord

1
Loving You, Lord’s all I’m living for;
Loving You, Lord, to the uttermost.
Lord, forgive me if I’ve left my first love,
That’s the bridal love to You.
You are more than any one I love.
You are more than anything I have,
Even my dear self; nothing can compare
To my beloved Bridegroom.
  I give You the first place in all things by faith.
Let nothing take Your place in all my heart.
Infuse me with Yourself abundantly
’Til we meet, dear Lord.
I’ll love You with the best love.
2
You’ve the right to take all that I love,
But replace it with Yourself much more.
You are what I need, give Yourself to me,
Do not give all that I want.
Everything is sure to pass away,
Everyone is going their own way.
But I still have You and You have me too,
Loving one another’s sweet.
3
I treasure my time alone with You,
Just to gain the best love You long for.
My dearest Husband, draw me with Yourself
Into Your chambers right now.
Be the first in all my work and life,
Be the first in all my service too.
In relationships, You must be the first;
Have preeminence in me.

Everyone is surely going their own way in this busy world, giving themselves to many different things. But we are those who are going the way of loving our dear Lord Jesus!
