Jesus Lord, You’re our first love

1
Jesus Lord, You’re our first love;
You’re the One we love the best.
When our heart is loving You,
How we’re filled with Your sweet rest!
2
Lord, we love You for Yourself,
Not for what You give or do.
Nothing else could e’er compare
With the joy of loving You.
  Lord, we’ve been drawn off by many things;
Now we turn our heart back—how it sings!
We repent of loving other things—
Jesus, Lord, You’re our first love.
3
Never more could we desire
Anything that’s less than You,
And to this we would aspire—
Simply to be filled with You.
4
Jesus Lord, You’re our first love;
You’re the One we love the best.
When our heart is loving You,
How we’re filled with Your sweet rest!

Enjoyed this song mid day, I was drawn off, but I'm thankful we can turn back to Him.

Isn't this the melody for "Once I had a Secret love"?

Today during the Bible study I really enjoyed that we need to give Him our first love daily! Lord Jesus, I still love You. Save me from my own "working" for You; instead, I want to "labor" in You and with You! Labor is doing things for The Lord out of love! If we love The Lord Jesus, we won't have to try to do things for Him out of duty. We will love Him so much we will just labor for Him out of love!

Oh Lord, we’ve been drawn off by many things. But now we turn our heart back—how it sings! We repent of loving other things—Jesus, Lord, You’re our first, best, and everlasting love! Fill us with Your sweet, eternal rest! Lord Jesus we love you!

P.S. Never lose your first love ♡ (Romans 2:1-7)
