Power to Love

Jesus, You are my Lord and my God.

You have exceedingly great power
Over all things:
Power to destroy the wicked,
Power to control the rebellious.

Power.

You have chosen the unfathomable
Way of love:
Love that conquers the wicked,
Love that frees' the rebellious.

Love.

You alone are holy, righteous, and pure.
You see all,
Yet see my sin no more.
You know all,
Yet know my rebellion no longer
Because of Your power to love.
