The Greatest Commandment

The greatest commandment
That Jesus imparts
“To love your Lord God
With all your heart”

I want to do this
But don’t follow through
Let’s be of Your Presence
For this moment or two

Focus of mind
With strength give control
A giving of heart
Love through the soul

Still I can’t do it
Let my will concede
Our source of love
Oh Lord, You I need

With love overflowing
In binding love true
Loving you here
Is easy to do

There’s a second part
To share with neighbor too
Always remember
To love yourself too!
