💖 Far Priceless | KT OLLA

I have glared at gleeful ’xcitement

Till it grew so dull

I have lingered long on love

Till I just let go

I have doted on this dear life

Till I preferred death instead

I have had them all

Like I had none

 

I have laughed an’ laughed

Without a single thrill

Been thrilled to chills

Without a happiness

Often happy I was

Without the bliss of joy

And I have had them all

But still lacked one

 

What could be happier than joy?

What could be lovelier than love?

What on earth could be more precious than life?

 

Then I dug up answers from dawn to dusk

Found debris where I hoped for diamonds

I groped for hope in the dust and the dark

But I found none till I met Him

 

Maybe when I first met You

Maybe I didn’t really grasp or get

What life I found

 

Maybe when Your love walked to me

Maybe I could have rejected You

Like many had

 

Maybe since I have found You

Maybe I could have exchanged You

For a billion dollars!

 

But I have found something

Something beyond all price

 

I have found something

Something beyond all!

 

What could be happier than joy?

What could be lovelier than love?

What on earth could be more precious than life?

O Jesus, You are far priceless than all!

 

O, what is man to be given the finest Gift?

What are we to earn the costliest Love?

Who are we, Jesus, to deserve Your Whole Self?

What is this me to have You, Lord?!

 

It was You

The feathers I flapped in ecstasy

My wings of pride and joy

The shed of crimson love

The voice of whispering breath

 

It was You

The voice in my noise

The secret secreting my strength

The radiance behind my smile

The strength within my health

 

Radiance of vivacity

Beam of sanity

Colour of beauty

Water of purity

Eternal mercy

Voice of life

 

The womb of comfort

The tomb of resurrection

The beat in every heart

The vein beneath my skin

It was You

 

It is You

The whisper of graciousness

The wisdom of ages

The stride of greatness

The path of life

The foundation of nations

 

You are Jesus Christ

And Your name is mystery

Your breath is power

Your path is wonder

 

You are Jesus Christ

And Your presence is light

Your voice is glory

Your heart is love

 

You are the poetry we love to pen

The song we want to sing

The hymn we love to chant

The story we want to tell

 

You are the portrait we wish to paint

The breath we wish to take

The One we want to love

The love we want to keep

 

You are the future I wish to see

The present I can’t let go of

 

You are the morrow I like to know

The life I want to live

 

You are my love

You are my First Love!

 

And I promise, sweet Jesus

That You are far priceless…

Than them all!
