Have I told You that I Love You,

when I count the stars at night.

Gaze upon a perfect moon,

gleaming silver bright.

Smell the evening Jasmine

with a nightingale in song.

Knowing You are with me

as You have been all along.


Have I told You that I Love You,

when the sun begins to rise.

Pink and golden halos

against a turquoise sky.

The birds all sing Your Glory,

a new day in the making.

Drinking in the wonder

even when my soul is aching.


Thank You for such blessings,

the sunshine and the breeze.

New life in the hedgerows,

rustling of the trees.

Thank You Lord for Loving me

when I forget my part,

Have I told You that I Love You

From the essence of my heart.
