"JESUS LOVING JESUS"

Verse 1
As I journeyed up the mountain
Of service, Lord, for You,
My heart was full of things I thought
You wanted me to do.
I struggled long and hard to earn
A place inside Your heart,
But seldom did I know my works
Kept You and I apart.

Refrain
My problems rose like waves a'crashing
On my storm-tossed boat,
Conceit and pride controlled me,
Despair was like my coat.
While others all around me
Walked nearer to Your side,
I longed to know the secret,
How I, too, could be Your Bride.

Chorus 1
Then Jesus, loving Jesus,
You drew me close to You,
And showed me that sweet secret
That many others knew.
And now I know that there's no way
To earn Your Love and trust,
But to hold still and love You, Lord,
And be Your yielded dust.

Verse 2
My life is so much happier now,
I've found such joy in You,
For all You ask of me is that I trust Your Word so true.
The pain, confusion, doubts and fears
Are covered by Your Love,
My heart now soars, for I'm in love
With You, my Lord Above.

Bridge
I love You, Jesus, all my life and service now I bring
And lay it down before You as my
Bridegroom and my King.
Use me as it pleases You, for You my life do own.
You taught me that sweet secret of trusting You alone.

Chorus 2
Hey, You drew me close to You
And showed me that sweet secret that 'til this day holds true.
And now I know that there's no way to
Earn Your Love and trust,
But to hold still and love You, Lord, and
Be Your yielded dust.

Chorus 3
Oh Jesus, loving Jesus, You drew me close to You,
And showed me that sweet secret that
'Til this day holds true.
And now I know that there's no way to
earn Your Love andtrust,
But to hold still and love You, Lord, and
Be Your yielded duust.
