I Love You Lord is my testimony and my salvation song. He found me and saved me, he steadied my life and made something beautiful out of it. I Love You Lord is based on Psalm 40 and Isaiah 61, see below, which is about how the Lord rescues David from the Mud and Mire (sinking sand or drowning). The Lord truly did this for me and my heart response is to sing praise to him everyday.
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me
Because the LORD has anointed me
To bring good news to the afflicted;
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to captives
And freedom to prisoners; …more
Psalm 40: 1-4
I waited patiently for the LORD;
And He inclined to me and heard my cry.
He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay,
And He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God;
Many will see and fear
And will trust in the LORD.
How blessed is the man who has made the LORD his trust,
And has not turned to the proud, nor to those who lapse into falsehood.
