God’s love is like a dewdrop,
that glistens in the sun
glowing in the warmth
from the light of His Son.
It’s a breath of fresh air,
full of the fragrance of spring
filling up the senses
with the beauty that it brings.
It’s as sturdy as an oak,
and as solid as a rock
firmly holding onto those
who gather as His flock.
It’s a taste of pure heaven,
a piece of pleasure and delight
to savor in the morning hours
and to enjoy throughout the night.
It’s as straight as an arrow,
that knows its intended mark
aiming for those who wander
to have a change of heart.
It’s as boundless as the ocean,
an endless mountain stream
flowing with living waters
that has no ridge or seam.
God’s love is as gentle as a Lamb,
so tender and so calm
for it brings comfort to the soul
like the soothing of a balm.
