I Love Him

In my heart I dance with my friend
Jesus, my Savior
My King and my God
I frolic like a child with my Master
Hand in hand, wind in our hair


Come if you want
Follow if you want
Or
Wallow if you want
Though how can some choose that?
What a tragedy to reject life sublime


But as for me
I will be free
My Savior and me


Oh that I may share his burdens
That I may also dance with him in the light


Naked and ashamed I came, and bleeding
Yet he touched me with his tender care
My Risen Redeemer, my Conquering King
Would that I had been there
Would to have helped with Simon of Cyrene
To bear the cross
What a privilege
To help carry the burden
To share in his sufferings
To know his pain
Ah, this is love
This is what you are looking for
