Petra – First Love lyrics

Words by Bob Hartman
Based on Revelation 2: 9, 1 John 4: 19, Song of Solomon 2: 4

Sometimes I feel I'm pulled in so many wrong directions
Sometimes I feel the world seducing my affections
It's not that I don't know the way
It's just a heart that's prone to stray
But with my weaknesses admitted
You will keep all that I've committed
So I commit my heart to You
My First Love

First Love - First Love
My soul longs after You
First Love - First Love
I want my heart to stay so true
Because You first loved me
Jesus You will always be
You will always be
My First Love

It's taken me some time to try to comprehend
A love that doesn't change - a love without an end
A love that keeps forgiving
A love of sacrifice and giving
I delight myself in You
My First Love

If I ever lack endurance
I remember Your assurance
That Your only banner over me is love
If my heart begins to waiver
Woo me back, my loving Savior
Woo me back till I return to my First Love

    You are my first love that I can't get away from which I don't want to get away from you B/C I love you more than houses or gold, more than money that I could use to buy whatever I wanted when I wanted it. I could care less about that stuff B/C one day it will be taken away anyway so why worry about that stuff? I need jesus more and more every day when I wake up in the morning till I lay my head to rest I need him.
