Faber: Why dost Thou love me so?

Friday, June 2, 2023
    As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.
    —John 15:9 (NIV)
Jesus! why dost Thou love me so?
What hast Thou seen in me
To make my happiness so great,
So dear a joy to Thee?
    ... Frederick William Faber (1814-1863), Hymns, New York: E. P. Dutton, 1877, p. 171 (see the book)
    See also John 15:9; Eph. 3:16-18; 5:1-2; Gal. 2:20; Heb. 12:1-2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have loved me even though I have not loved You.
