Better than life

I can only stand in awe

At the love I have been shown

For my heart once sojourned

In longing for a home

I looked in empty places

That would never satisfy

Though the world promised more

The promises were lies

I began to feel a pull toward

A love beyond my dreams

A love I would have ignored

Had He not first sought me

And though my heart is cold

His is warmer in my need

Refusing to be quenched

By my wrongs or apathy

Now my heart no longer

Sojourns in need of a home

For he took me in His arms

And chose me as His own

Surrounding me with love

That pierces through my night

A love that is higher and

Better than my life
