Love is…

Love is like the five loaves and two fish, it doesn’t start to multiply until you give it ALL to Jesus…!

Give of your best to the Master;
Give of the strength of your youth.
Throw your soul’s fresh, glowing ardor
Into the battle for truth.
Jesus has set the example,
Dauntless was He, young and brave.
Give Him your loyal devotion;
Give Him the best that you have.

Refrain

Give of your best to the Master;
Give of the strength of your youth.
Clad in salvation’s full armor,
Join in the battle for truth.

Give of your best to the Master;
Give Him first place in your heart.
Give Him first place in your service;
Consecrate every part.
Give, and to you will be given;
God His beloved Son gave.
Gratefully seeking to serve Him,
Give Him the best that you have.

Refrain

Give of your best to the Master;
Naught else is worthy His love.
He gave Himself for your ransom,
Gave up His glory above.
Laid down His life without murmur,
You from sin’s ruin to save.
Give Him your heart’s adoration;
Give Him the best that you have.

Refrain

From a better perspective… ‘Oh the Love that sought me!’

In tenderness You sought me, Weary and sick with sin,
And on Your shoulders brought me into Your fold again.
While angels in Your presence sang until the courts of heaven rang.

Oh, the love that sought me! Oh, the blood that bought me!
Oh, the grace that brought me to the fold, Wondrous grace that brought me to the fold!

You washed the bleeding sin-wounds, And poured in oil and wine;
You whispered to assure me, ”I’ve found thee, thou art Mine:”
I never heard a sweeter voice, It made my aching heart rejoice.

You pointed to the nail-prints, For me Your blood was shed;
A mocking crown so thorny, Was placed upon Your head:
I wondered what You saw in me, To suffer such deep agony.

I’m sitting in Your presence, The sunshine of Your face,
While with adoring wonder Your blessings I retrace.
It seems as if eternal days Are far too short to sound Your praise.

So while the hours are passing, All now is perfect rest;
I’m waiting for the morning, The brightest and the best,
When You will call us to Your side, To be with You, Your spotless Bride.
