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!

Amen! How we love God above anything else! Nothing can replace Him! We love Him even more each day! We can't compare Him to any other thing here on earth for He is so Great as our very God who is everything to us and our all and in all! Hallelujah! To love and enjoy Him fully is such the bountiful ways to feel His fragrance and preciousness! Let us boldly declare, "Lord Jesus, we love You and we are Yours alone! Constrain us more with Your love! Cause us to be the loving seekers of Yours today and forever!" Amen.

Praise the Lord! :)

Thank the Lord for such a reminding hymn! It is only the Lord that our hearts love the best. It's the Lord's person that has attracted us, not what He gives and does to us...May the Lord reveal more of Himself that our hearts would repent on loving things less than Him. Oh, Lord, You're our first love!

Thank You God for loving me. Thank You Daddy for not leaving me when I left my first love for You. Please help me return to my first love. Help me Daddy please so I can teach transgressors Your way and my sinning brothers and sisters will be converted to You.
