Lord, You know that we love You;
You know our thoughts and intentions,
Know the depth of devotion
Found in our lives today.
If our love has weakened, if our fervour has waned,
Turn us, Lord, by Your Spirit,
Let us love with love unfeigned.
Lord, You know that we love You!
Help that love to be true;
Fill our lives with Your Spirit’s power,
Lord of love, make us strong –
We who to Christ belong.
Lord, You know that we fail You;
Our sins, how sorely they grieve You!
Many times have we fallen;
Lord, lift us up again.
May we walk to be worthy of the call that is ours;
May Your will and Your purpose
Claim our undivided powers!
After Jesus’ resurrection, He met Peter on the shore of the Sea of Galilee and reinstated him as a disciple by asking him questions about his devotion, since Peter had denied knowing Jesus soon after His arrest. As recorded in John 21:15-19, Peter responded with words similar to those of the above song: “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Prayerfully reading or singing this song can be a helpful way for each of us to accept the Lord’s forgiveness for our failures, and to reaffirm our commitment to Him.He met Peter on the shore of the Sea of Galilee and reinstated him Click To Tweet
The author, Howard Davies, has a beautiful knack of putting our common human feelings into simple, earnest words. His career was spent as a Salvation Army officer in varied appointments in Australia and the UK, but he found time to write a good number of songs for both songster (choir) and congregational use. He has also composed musicals about the lives of William Booth and George Scott Railton, as well as brass band compositions and arrangements for band journals.Howard Davies, has a beautiful knack of putting our common human feelings into simple, earnest words.
