Stubborn Love

Caught again, your faithless friend.
Don’t You ever tire of hearing
What a fool I’ve been?
Guess I should pray,
But what can I say?
Oh, it hurts to know the hundred times
I’ve caused You pain.

The “forgive me” sounds so empty
When I never change.
Yet You stay and say, “I love you still,”
Forgiving me time and time again.

It’s Your stubborn love
That never lets go of me.
I don’t understand how You can stay –
Perfect love embracing the worst in me
How I long for Your stubborn love.

Funny me.
Just couldn’t see
Even long before I knew You,
You were loving me.

Sometimes I cry –
You must cry, too
when You see the broken promises
I’ve made to you.
I keep saying that I’ll trust You
Though I seldom do.
Yet You stay and say You love me still,
Knowing some day I’ll be like You.

It’s Your stubborn love
That never lets go of me.
I don’t understand how You can stay —
Perfect love embracing the worst in me.
And You never let me go
I believe I finally know
I can’t live without Your stubborn love!
