Love freely given

Phoebe Traquair Love's Testament

Phoebe Traquair, Love’s Testament (1898), Collection of Lord Lloyd Webber

Do you know?  Have you heard?

You are loved!

You are loved with an everlasting love.

Each hair on your head,

each crease on your lips,

each freckle, each blemish, each part of you

is loved and loved and loved.

 

And there is nothing you can do

to make God love you more.

And there is nothing you can do

to make God love you less.

God loves you just as you are!

Isn’t that incredible, amazing, wonderful?

 

When God looks at you

God looks through the eyes of love.

God sees nothing but love in you

and through you

and with you.

All you have to do is believe it.

Believe that you are loved

with a love that knows no end.

 

God’s love is always patient and kind,

doesn’t force itself on others,

doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.

Love never dies.

God’s love for you never dies.

Never, ever.

 

Have you heard me?

Do you believe me?

You are loved, you lovely creature.
