I Adore You

There are many contemporary worship songs that we could consider “love” songs to Jesus. While we should certainly pour out our hearts in love to our Savior, most of these songs communicate a mere sentimental love that hardly surpasses the “love” our culture sings about and advertises to every day. What a joy to find a love song that shows WHY we love Christ, and the fact that our love drives us to want to be like Him more and more. Songs like this will help our people to know and feel the love of Christ – both His love for us and our love for Him.


Verse 1:
Jesus my Lord, my God, my All,
Hear me, my Savior, when I call;
Hear me, and from Your dwelling place
Pour down the riches of Your grace.

Verse 2:
Jesus, 'twas You too late I sought;
How can I love You as I ought?
And how extol Your matchless fame,
The glorious beauty of Your name?

Jesus, my Lord, I adore You;
O make me love You more and more.
Jesus, my Lord, Jesus, my love,
I adore You.

Verse 3:
Jesus, what did You find in me
That you have dealt so lovingly?
How great the joy that You have brought,
So far exceeding hope or thought.

Verse 4:
Jesus, to You I raise my song;
To You my heart and soul belong,
All that I have or am is Yours
And You, my Savior, I adore.
