Why Do You Do The Things You Do
Category: Poetry
Views: 166

I am amazed at the work of Your hands
You make this world a beautiful place
Though this place has lost its beauty
I am amazed at the sight of Your face
You give me strength to carry on, free
Though this face was stuck in the sand

What could I say that would explain it just right
Where could I run to so the darkness wonít find me
Who can I turn to when I need a new daylight
Why do You do the things You do

Iíve broken down but You continue to mend me
Iíve hit the ground but You continue to raise me
Youíve loved me so and I continue to praise You
Youíve told me so and I extend my hands to You
Jesus, how I love You

I was so tired of moments with no resolution
You brought the peace, you settled the war
Though this war continues to be fought in time
I was so weary, famished down to the core
You gave me bread of life and held me tight
Though the core of the apple was not in submission

When did I ever receive such love as Yours, God
How can I fathom every breath that Iím taking
I was dying but You brought me back from the grave, God
Why do You do the things You do

Iíve broken down but You continue to mend me
Iíve hit the ground but You continue to raise me
Youíve loved me so and I continue to praise You
Youíve told me so and I extend my hands to You
Jesus, how I love You

Jesus, how I love You
Oh, Jesus I love You so
Jesus, how I adore You
Oh Jesus, how I need You

I give You thanks beyond what I could ever speak of
You give me grace and mercy and a moment in Your true love
I celebrate this life, now that Youíre whom Iím living for
Who could ever strive to live for more

Jesus, though I am a sinner
Though I am a man
Though Iíve lost my way
Though Iíve cursed the day
You still love me
Why do You do the things You do
