I LOVE THE FATHER (I)
For me; I love the Father for He gave
Innumerable blessings and forgave
Me through the worth of all that Christ has done.
I love the Father since He deigned to run
To welcome me as one brought from the grave;
I love Him since He wished to bless and save:
He blessed me in His well-beloved One.
Considering the graciousness that brought
My soul to Christ, whence I will never drift,
I love the Father for what He has wrought.
I love the Father for He makes me lift
My heart in praise, considering the thought
Christ has me from the Father as a gift.
