"This is love," lyrics by me

Christ set the standard for love: dying to self so that
others might know life.
This is where easy ends
This is where sacrifice begins
This is where my heart bends
This is where my life caves in

This is how dreams are ruined
This is how chains are made
This is what love is doing
This is what kills my hate

This is not what you've been told
About how love behaves
They tell you satisfy your soul
But I say true love waits

And it's hard, and it hurts
And it sets you up to fall
But it's good, and it heals
And it will save you after all

This is where evil loses
This is where righteousness wins
This is where cuts and bruises
Are all worth it in the end

This is where I go last
This is where you go first
This is where I would fast
For you to satisfy your thirst

This is how rejection comes
To those who open their heart
This is why tears may run
When you don't get what you give out

This is love, this is truth
I gave my life for you
It is all in what I do
That made me living proof

Oh, before you loved me
This my love, I gave to you"
(written by Michaela Danielle)

"This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins." - 1 John 4:10
