A bedtime song about love and kisses

“E, it’s time for bed!”

(She climbs into bed with help of her small chair. There’s two teddy bears on her bed)

“How about a goodnight kiss?”

(She clambers over and takes the bear #1, and kisses bear #2)

“That’s right, bear loves bear. Dada loves E. E loves mama. Mama loves dada. And God loves us best through Jesus. Would you like to hear a song about love?”

(She nods)

“OK, let’s sing about love.”

Here is love, vast as the ocean,
Lovingkindness as the flood,
When the Prince of Life, our Ransom,
Shed for us His precious blood.
Who His love will not remember?
Who can cease to sing His praise?
He can never be forgotten,
Throughout Heav’n’s eternal days.

On the mount of crucifixion,
Fountains opened deep and wide;
Through the floodgates of God’s mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide.
Grace and love, like mighty rivers,
Poured incessant from above,
And Heav’n’s peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love.

Let me all Your love accepting,
Love You, ever all my days;
Let me seek Your kingdom only
And my life be to Your praise;
You alone shall be my glory,
Nothing in the world I see.
You have cleansed and sanctified me,
You Yourself have set me free.

– “Here is Love“, William Rees, William Williams
