No Greater Love

By Reverie    Reverie

Sometimes I like to think
About what there is to life.
Especially when I'm living through
Hard blunders and much strife.

I like to remember
How Jesus died for us.
And how with much love and care.
He walked up to the cross.

There really is no greater care.
There is no greater love,
Than the one that is felt for us,
Than the one that's from above.

On Mount Calvary, He was nailed
On that hard piece of wood.
And did not come down from it,
Even though He could.

He stayed there, suffering,
For our removal of sin.
And proved with His undying love
That sin shall never win.

There really is no greater care.
There is no greater love,
Than the one that is felt for us,
Than the one that's from above.

Christ put his foot on the serpent's head
And declared him void and null.
And death's defeat was evident
As our grace was in renewal.

And as I think about the world itself
I realize quite clearly,
That the absence that inhabits earth
Is bigger than it seems.

There really is no greater care.
There is no greater love,
Than the one that is felt for us,
Than the one that's from above.

If only the world knew how great
God loves all His children
That all He does within this world,
Is for the good of them.

There really is no greater care.
There is no greater love,
Than the one that is felt for us,
Than the one that's from above.
