Why is it so difficult for us to love the way we’re supposed to love? And yet we expect others to love us in that way!:
Love Divine, oh, Love Divine,
I cannot love like You;
When shadows shutter aching heart,
I don’t know what to do.
Love Divine, oh, Blessed One,
How can I heed love’s call?
Each time I try to love like You
I stumble, reach and fall.
Empower me, dear Lamb of God
To love from my life’s cross;
Those barbs from them who love me not
Will teach me sweetest cost.
Come forth, Sweet Love, as higher tide
And drown this selfish heart;
To love like You will take a flood
To tear this soul apart.
