All Because of His Great Love ( by Fenny West)

All Because of His Great Love

He went through the valley
of the shadow of death for us
All because of His great love for us.

He saw you and I
In the corridors of time
And said the cross was worth it
All because of His great love.

He foresaw your coming to the Cross
To cross over to God;
Cross over from death to life ;
Cross over from darkness to light
Cross over from the chasm to safety,
Reconciliation, justification, salvation,
So He endured the cross, despising its shame,
All because of His great love.

So what should I do?
What should you do?

As the deer pants for the water brooks so my soul longs after You.
As a dry land is thirsty for water, so my soul longs for You.

{18:1} I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

{18:2} The LORD [is] my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, [and] my high tower.

{18:3} I will call upon the LORD, [who is worthy] to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

63:1} O God, thou [art] my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;

{63:2} To see thy power and thy glory, so [as] I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

{63:3} Because thy lovingkindness [is] better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

{63:4} Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
{63:5} My soul shall be satisfied as [with] marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise [thee] with joyful lips:
{63:6} When I remember thee upon my bed, [and] meditate on thee in the [night] watches.

{63:7} Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
{63:8} My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me. make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.

{84:1} How amiable [are] thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts!

{84:2} My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.

{84:3} Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for

 herself, where she may lay her young, [even] thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.

{84:4} Blessed [are] they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.

{84:5} Blessed [is] the man whose strength [is] in thee; in whose heart [are] the ways [of them.

]{84:6} [Who] passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
{84:7} They go from strength to strength, [every one of them] in Zion appeareth before God.

{84:8} O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob.  Selah.

{84:9} Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine  anointed.

{84:10} For a day in thy courts [is] better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

{84:11} For the LORD God [is] a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good [thing] will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

{84:12} O LORD of hosts, blessed [is] the man that trusteth in thee.
