he loves meYou see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die.8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:6-8 NIV


God picked a flower and said to Adam,

Let’s play “He loves me, He loves me not

Adam started with the first petal

“He loves me” pronounced right on the spot


God’s turn was next, a petal to take

He loves Me not” never skipping a beat

That’s not fair for heaven’s sake

God’s done nothing to deserve that seat


Even after I disobeyed in the garden

Adam grabbed next and said with glee

Though my heart had started to harden

He still repeats that “He loves me.”


He loves Me not”, all will say

I’ll send My son from above

Though they reject and kill him

They’ll see my commitment to love


“He loves me”, I don’t understand

I have nothing good in me to give

Even my worst, doesn’t change His plan

Jesus died in my place, so I may live


Jesus took the next petal on the flower

“He loves Me not, rejected and shamed

Please, Father, be glorified in this hour

Sacrificial love had finally been  named


Only one petal left for Adam to choose

The message would be undeniable

“He love me!” is the greatest of news

His faithfulness is totally reliable


God is the loser it seems to be

All the bad has fallen His way

Choose the petal, “He loves me”

Always true, day after day after day


Love only finds a way to give

It never seeks its on pleasure

Follow God’s love, it’s how to live

Grace given to us beyond measure
