To Love is a Costly Call

To love is a costly call, for love can have no strings
it steals time and breaks your heart and wrinkles everything

To love is to gamble if it were not for the Christ
Who swallowed death to save my heart because He knows my fight

The one I lose so hopelessly each morning when I wake
Because my heart is human and it hungers more to blame

To lust and twist and use this life for what I want instead
I merely open up my mouth and I can smell the dead (Matt.15:17-19)

To love is impossible without my anguished prayer
Please help me God to love so much I cannot help but care

Even when no not one of them desires my love at all
When I am trampled under foot, mocked and scorned and mauled

To love is a costly call for you were bled bone dry
No earthly guaranteed result, love clearly means to die

So as I die each of these days you've granted me O Lord
I'm watching for the many seeds You spoke of in Your Word (John 12:24)
