Today I Remember

One Christmas early,
     when I was but a boy,
I heard the baby Jesus cry,
     as my heart knew His hunger,
And all I could do was sigh.

One Easter late,
     when I had become a man,
Jesus for sure heard my cry,
     as His heart knew my hunger,
And throughout the heavens,
     echoed long His sigh.

Today I remember,
     Jesus loved me first,
But now I understand why,
     all He gave up for me
Still makes me cry.

The day I loved Him back,
     it was blood for blood,
But nowhere near in measure,
     in Him I am holy, and now
I serve at His great pleasure.
