When first Your Love Touched my heart..

When first Your Love Touched my heart,
That summer seventeen years ago...
I had no idea of how You'd Change me,
Or how my love for You would grow!

Like a flower - trying to blossom'
Being slowly choked by 'weeds'...
I struggled to remember
Long ago Sunday School 'seeds'!

Could it really be True that You Loved me -
In spite of all I'd done?
I tried so hard to believe it -
And - like a flower bud - turned my face to Your 'Sun'!

Warmth and tenderness FLOODED my being,
Chasing dark shadows away...
"Be still, My Love, Rest in MY Arms!"
Your Holy Spirit SEEMED to say!

Slowly, like a flower bud opening,
I learned to make decisions that were right for me alone.
You Smiled upon me day and night...
And before long all my fears had flown!

Slowly, You Opened my 'petals',
And Used me to Perfume the air...
You Taught me how to BE Your Love,
To other suffering souls everywhere!

Our Summer Love continues,
I have no fear that it will fade...
Because, "I will NEVER leave you!"
Is A Promise to my heart that You Made!

So, Jesus...
What can I possible say?
I'll love You forever,
Simply because You Promised to stay!
