Love Song for Sarah

When I first met Sarah I wrote this chord progression on the piano for her. I used to play it everyday and pray for her. After a while I put lyrics to the song.

Sarah was the first in our relationship to actually say the words, “I love you.” In fact she didn’t really mean to, they just slipped out one day when we were gazing deeply into each other’s eyes.

I didn’t say, “I love you” back.

Instead, I took her hand, pulled her over to the piano, and played this song.

(my voice cracks a bit but that’s what it use to sound like when I’d sing it and pray for her. I wrote the lyrics to the bridge after we got married.)

As the icy ground cries out for spring
To melt the snow and make it bloom
So I hunger for your touch
To awaken me
The distance between us may be
A thousand miles or none at all
Our hearts are one in purpose
Glorifying Christ

And I have fallen for you

I have felt this for a while now
I love you
You will know when I say it’s true
I love you

When shadows wake to veil your face
And dark assails these sacred ways
I will cry out to God for strength to save you
I will protect you from everything that comes against us

In the darkest night
I love you
When the moon is high
I love you
In the morning light
I love you
Through this bitter life
I’ll love you
Day after day
I’ll love you
And by God’s grace
I’ll love you
For all my life
I’ll love you with all my life

    I love that song. Almost as much as I love you.
