jesus i love you

I was sitting on the couch a few hours ago, resting on this Sabbath, playing some worship songs as I tried to focus my mind and heart back on Jesus, the one whom I love. But I found that very few songs seemed to focus on him. At least, the ones that I kept thinking of mostly just spoke of Jesus' character, how wonderful he is, and how he affects me, and all that is true. But I found myself wishing there was a song that simply talked about those incredible moments in the gospels that make me fall in love with Jesus over and over again. I wanted a song that reminded me of all the stories, the words, the miracles that have enthralled me and captured my heart on Jesus. So I decided to write one. It's small, and I can't put the melody here, but here it is. 


Word made fleshYou have come and dwelt with us You have come and we are changed By your unexpected grace 


You came to feel And everyone you touched was healed We have seen the dead alive And we say you are the Christ 


I wanna be where you are, with you I wanna be like you I wanna do everything that you do Jesus, I love you 


Come to meBlessed are the poor and meek I tell you love your enemies Take your cross and follow me 


Do not fear I have come to wash your feet I have come to do his willI command the waves be still 


I wanna be where you are, with you I wanna be like you I wanna do everything that you do Jesus, I love you


You are the truth and the life You are complete sacrifice You are the reason the veil was torn in two You harness death into birthYou bring the kingdom to earthYou are the one who is making all things new


I wanna be where you are, with you I wanna be like you I wanna do everything that you do Jesus, I love you
