Lord, You Loved Me First and Now my Heart Belongs to You

Ave Maria Meditations

In Your mercy, Lord, You called me,
Taught my sinful heart and mind,
Else this world had still enthralled me,
And to glory kept me blind.
 
Lord, I did not freely chose You,
Till by grace You set me free;
For my heart would still refuse You
Had Your love not chosen me.
 
Now my heart sets none above You,
for Your grace alone I thirst,
Knowing well, that if I love You,
You, O Lord, have loved me first.

Our Lady found this unworthy lukewarm person and obtained for her the grace to enter the Third Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate. May this person spend all eternity in showing her gratitude.
