Lyrics -- The Sweet, Sweet Love of Jesus
The Sweet, Sweet Love of Jesus
My mournful tears like diamonds fell.
They fell upon the Masterís breast --
a mantle fit just for the King --
and there I found His blessed rest.
Oh, the sweet, sweet love of Jesus is
my banquet meal, my daily bread.
No other God shall I ever serve
but The Lifter of My Head.
No weapon formed, no raging sea,
no mountain high, nor sinking sand
shall ever take His love from me,
nor snatch me from My Fatherís hand.
The sweet, sweet love of Jesus is
so gentle like the morning dew,
refreshing to my thirsty soul.
Embraced by Love, Iím made anew.
Oh, the sweet, sweet love of Jesus is.
The sweet, sweet love of Jesus is.

Psalm 3:3 But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.
Psalm 30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

Hallelujah! Beautiful song, my sister. It is nice to get a chance to catch up with your writing. God bless.
It is so sweet! He is the lifter of my head, as you've so diligently pointed out to me this week :D What would I do without you, my big sister? My cup indeed runs over...
This one just needs to be sung. Thank you for submitting it. Thomas
Your song reminded me of how touched I was few days ago when God clearly "confirmed" to me how much He loves me that made me cried and uttered, "Lord, You really love me! You really do!!" And you know Sister, how God used you as His messenger? May the windows of Heaven open and pour down His blessings upon you according to your heart's desires. Love in Christ, Gloria
These are beautiful lyrics, and you have a good rhyme and meter for putting them to music. Great Job! Sharlyn
