Love Song For Jesus
I hesitate a little with this because I don’t want to mistake love for Christ with the romantic passions we feel, especially as teenagers. But I’m beginning to think that our teenage passionate romances are foreshadowing a love for Christ that is far more than intellectual. So with that in mind, here’s one of my faves, written by Buck Ram, released in 1954 and sung most famously by The Platters: Only You
You may want to listen while you read this; go here.
Only you can make this world seem right
Only you can make the darkness bright
Only you and you alone can thrill me like you do
and fill my heart with love for only you.
Only you can make this change in me
For it’s true you are my destiny
When you hold my hand, I understand the magic that you do
You’re my dream come true my one and only you.
