This is one of my very first songs, from when I was 18 years old, a freshman in college, and had a broken heart. I wrote what I believed God would say about me, and played it over and over again in my healing. Since then I’ve gotten to sing and play the Father’s Heart in this song over other broken people too.
I love her when I’m singing
A song she cannot hear
I love her when she can’t believe
That I could hold her dear
I love her when I touch her and
She runs away in fear
I love her when she thinks I’m gone
And when she knows I’m near.
I loved her when she loved Me
And I loved her when she couldn’t
I loved her when she trusted Me
I loved her when she wouldn’t!
I loved her when I planned the world
And all that I would do
I loved her long before the dawn,
Before she ever knew.
I’ll love her when I wound her
And when I make her whole
I’ll love her into loving Me
With all her heart and soul.
I’ll love her in the blackest night
For no reason but grace.
I’ll change her for eternity
The day she sees My face.
For I loved her in My living
And I loved her to My death
I love her right now just as much
I’ll never love her less!
I love her when she smiles at Me
And still, when she forgets
I’ll forgive her in My love
And wipe out her regrets.
So tell her that I love her
When she’s trembling like a leaf
Tell her to remember
When she’s crying out in grief
That when My daughter’s crying
And she thinks that I don’t see
There’s nothing in the universe
I hold closer to Me.
