To Give God all My Heart

by Holli Gibbs

I didn’t love You from the very start

When what I loved the most was my own way,

But now I live to give You all my heart.

You made a promise—that we would never part,

That You would love me always, come what may,

But I didn’t love You from the very start.

At first alone my course I chose to chart,

Ignoring the love You showed me day by day,

But now I live to give You all my heart.

Then as my dreams began to fall apart,

I found my way cost far too much to pay.

I didn’t love You from the very start.

I began to see the beauty of Your art

Of loving me while I pushed You far away.

And now I live to give You all my heart.

So let me never from this truth depart,

That Your love has empowered me to say

That though I didn’t love You from the start,

Now I live to give You all my heart.
