Like You First Loved Me

If I could ask you anything at all
I wouldn’t ask a single “why God” when you called
If I could walk with you like Adam walked with you
In the cool of the evening we could talk
I’d ask your favorite color and while you held my hand
I’d ask to hear the part again about when the world began
We could talk all night long, stay awake until the dawn
My Lord I’m asking you

How do I get to know the one Who created me?
How do I get to know the God Who breathes His life into me?
How do I get to know the One whose love set me free?
How do I learn to love you Jesus…like you first loved me?

If I could talk with you like Abram talked with you
Would we talk of souls and cities all night long?
Does your heart sigh like mine, with every new born’s cry?
Do you like chasing fireflies in the dark?
In faith I walk with you, in prayer I talk with you
What will you ask of me my Lord?
In faith I walk with you, in prayer I talk with you
So I ask you my Lord

How do I get to know the one Who created me?
How do I get to know the God Who breathes His life into me?
How do I get to know the One whose love set me free?
How do I learn to love you Jesus ……
How do I learn to love you Jesus
How can I love you Jesus…..like you first loved me?
