Show Me Your Love

Home » Original Songs » Modern Hymns


For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. - John 3:16

Perhaps one of the most oft-quoted verses of the Bible, John 3:16 may also be one of the least-believed. Though here in the west we have probably heard that God loves us a thousand times, we often live like it's not true. We live in loneliness, fear, or insecurity, and those struggles ultimately have their root in unbelief - unbelief that God loves us and has promised to take care of us. This song is a cry for help - help believing in the unbreakable love of God... help in the midst of pain, doubt, and anxiety; help believing in the objective truth of Scripture: "In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins." (1 John 4:10). We don't have assurance that God loves us because of how we feel or how we are doing spiritually; rather, God demonstrated His love at the cross that we might be anchored by His love even when we feel like we're being blown away by the struggles of life and the struggles of our own sinfulness. Believer, be encouraged today that God loves you even when you don't feel it.


How can I feel so lonely
When You have clearly shown me
Undying love?
I’m gripped by fear
So I need to hear
Of Your love.

Tell me again that in my sin
You’ve shown me nothing but Your grace;
Open Your Word, where I have heard
All of my guilt has been erased
That I might know Your love’s embrace
In my darkness
Show me Your love.

How can I feel so guilty
When Jesus’ blood has cleansed me
From all my sin?
I disbelieve
That I have received
Perfect love.

In this is love- Jesus was sent,
On Him the wrath of God was spent.
