Only God Could Love You More
God's Love is a Haven in the Storms of Life
God's love is like an island
in life's ocean vast and wide-
A peaceful, quiet shelter
from the restless, risisng tide.
God's love is like a fortress,
and we seek protection there
When the waves of tribulation
seem to drown us in despair.
God's love's a sanctuary
where our souls can find sweet rest
From the struggle and the tension
of life's fast and futile quest.
God's love is like a tower
rising far above the crowd,
And God's smile is like the sunshine
breaking through a thretening cloud.
God's love is like a beacon
burning bright with faith and prayer,
And through the changing scenes of life
we can find a haven there.
For God's love is fashioned
after something enduring
And it is endless and unfailing
like His character above.
