FOR YOU LOVED ME FIRST……A Poem

I sought You
With tears, I sought You
And I found You–
Or rather I was found by You.
My seeking was Your seeking
For You loved me first.

You found Me
With joy, You found me.
My spirit leaped—
Springing up like a child at play.
Ageless, deathless, without end
For You loved me first.

You led me
Each step, You led me
And I confess—
Never once did I know the way.
Cloud by day and fire by night,
For You loved me first.

You kept me
Through time, You kept me
Though I wandered—
Always true, Shepherd to my soul.
All the waters failed to quench,
For you loved me first.
