I love God because...

1
I love God because He loved me long before the world began.
I love God because He knew my destiny.
I love God because He made me part of His eternal plan.
I love God because He first loved me.
  I love Him for all the things He’s done for me.
I love Him for all that He is, all that He is to me.
But, most of all, I love Him as the Spirit
Who deep within my spirit lives.
2
I love God because He came in time to be the Son of Man.
I love God because He gave Himself for me.
I love God because He conquered death that I might live in Him.
I love God because He first loved me.
3
I love God because He’s processed now to be my life within.
I love God because He is transforming me.
I love God because He’s building up the New Jerusalem.
I love God because He still loves me.

I love this song! It gives me great reasons to love God! It's rich in God's economy, simple in utterance, and easy to sing. I like it especially for the last sentence in the chorus, "But, most of all, I love Him as the Spirit Who deep within my spirit lives." I love to hear the "Who" stretching over five notes! (The only other well-known hymn I know with a monosyllabic word that stretches over five notes is "How sweet the name of Jesus sounds in a believer's ear!" - with music by J.C. Lowry)
