A CROWN OF SONNETS I
I love the Saviour since He died for me
To save me from my sins and their dire end;
And I love Jesus since He is my Friend,
Whom I am waiting longingly to see;
I love the One who has the right to be
Both Lord and Christ; the One who could ascend,
Having annulled what I was to offend
A holy God, to bless and set me free.
I love the Lord for all that He has done
To accomplish all the purposes of God;
And for His moral glories as He trod
On earth, while now in heaven His glory's shown
For faith to wonder at; I love the Son
Because the Son has made the Father known.
This is the first of fourteen linked sonnets.
