Love runs so much deeperLike the greater oceans beneath the Earth’s surface
And many hidden rivers that roar;
True love embraces the spirit
Tenderly wraps about the heart
With gentleness always upon the soul,
The body honored,
Hands of kindness touch the human frailty,
Purest care given to the one so loved!
The eternal wealth of a human being
Valued as a vessel, as a disciple of the Lord;
Seen in a friend, in a lover
As family or a neighbor
As a stranger or foreigner far off,
True love gives generously and receives with thanksgiving.
All is done with Holy Spirit wings of freedom
That glide as angels from the Throne Room,
In powerful inner discipline down upon the earth,
Settling in protective, encouraging strength upon one more so loved.
In quiet moments, two or three drawn together as servants of love,
Difficult today to find,
This true love that runs so much deeper,
Steadfastness a gift lived out
Learned from day to day
Grows as knowledge from above grows within,
Understanding of greater things
Greater heavenly purposes
Greater lasting meaning in our lives.
