I Pray for Love

I pray for love like Yours for me
from my heart Your light they see

I pray for love, patient and kind
so my thoughts reflect Your mind

I pray for love, friendly and nice
remembering You paid the price

I pray for love, humble and selfless
knowing Your grace and mercy are endless

I pray for love that’s not easily riled
with a temperament sweet and mild

I pray for love that forgives each wrong
not keeping a record of debts that’s long

I pray for love rejoicing in truth
shunning evil from my days of youth

I pray for love to save and trust
leaning on Your judgments just

I pray for love hopeful and enduring
by Your Spirit I’m daily maturing

I pray for love that never will fail
Love like Yours that tore the veil
