A Love Song for Jesus
It was Saturday when we were scheduled to sing at the church..I’m talking about Mindanao Sanitarium and Hospital College Campus Church at Tibanga, Iligan City. Our group sung the song “My Jesus, I Love Thee”, originally written and composed by William Ralf Featherstone and Adoniram J. Gordon. It’s a song from a Christian group “Avalon”, a mixed quartet group known to every religious contemporary music lovers. The song told us how we love God not because He provided our every need but simply because He first loved us by hanging on the cross of Calvary. It was a powerful song originally arranged by Avalon in acapella version, but we covered the version with accompaniment which we found in youtube. Many responded to the song after we delivered it but it’s not just because of how it was sung but because of its very beautiful message. Surely, God loves us more than anything. He gave His son to wear the crown of thorns and purchased our pardon on that cross so that we may have eternal life and inherent that mansion He prepared for us. God first loved us, so, let us also do our part to love and accept Him now.
