Greater Love

Play Garritan® Audio Track

This song was written for Chadwick on June 21, 1982. for my son's dedication service at the Oakbrook Terrace Corps of The Salvation Army. When I became a father for the second time, I was struck how my life was now different. I was overwhelmed how I could love my daughter Melissa, and feel the same kind of love for my son Chadwick. Then I was reminded of how much Jesus loved me, that he laid down His life for me, and He still calls me His friend, and calls me His son. This song expresses the desire of my heart as well as Kathie's - that our children would seek the joy of the Lord, know His commands, and to do His will. "Greater love hath no man than this that he lay down is life for his friend". John 16:13
