Makes Me Want To Love Him Too

I love this old Leslie Phillips’ song. Just like the musical style of the song, the words are simple and beautiful. If we truly understand God’s kindness and goodness, we will be drawn to repentance.

Waiting for angry words to sear my soul
Knowing I don’t deserve another chance
Suddenly the kindest words I’ve ever heard
Come flooding from God’s heart

(Chorus)
It’s your kindness that leads us
To repentance Oh Lord
Knowing that You love us
No matter what we do
Makes us want to love You too
(Repeat)

No excuse no one to blame
No way to hide
The eyes of God have found my failures
Found my pain
He understands my weaknesses
And knows my shame
But His heart never leaves me.

(Repeat Chorus)
It’s your kindness that leads us
To repentance Oh Lord
Knowing that You love us
No matter what we do
Makes us want to love You too

(Bridge)
If You are for us
Who can be against us
You gave us everything
even Your only Son

(Repeat Chorus)
It’s your kindness that leads us
To repentance Oh Lord
Knowing that You love us
No matter what we do
Makes us want to love You too

  1. Leslie Phillips used to be one of my FAVORITES!! 🙂

  2. Renee, I have loved this song for years. I think I love it more every time I hear it. Maybe because, as I grow in my relationship with Christ, I grow more and more aware of my sin and more and more grateful for His kindness to me.

  3. This has been one of my mom’s and my favorites for a LONG time! I even downloaded it off of iTunes recently because I missed hearing it.

    When I was a young lad matriculating at NCJC in the beautiful hills of Pennsylvania, Evelyn Ernhardt, a wonderful young lady who sang with Sonrise, sang this song. As I read these words again these many years later, I can still hear her melodious voice sweetly singing this song . Such a wonderful Spirit filled song. Evelyn, if you happen upon this blog, thank you for that wonderful memory.
