When I Feel His Love

I had a meeting at Church the other night and this song (by Janice Kapp Perry I believe) was sung:

When I Feel His Love
Quiet times of revelation tune my heart to see
Tender mercies of the Lord are daily shown to me.
As I feel the love of God I seem to understand
I can be an instrument in Heavenly Father's hands.
And when I feel His love my heart has one desire:
To share the joy and warmth His perfect love inspires.
My hands reach out to all in purest charity
That other souls may feel God's love through me.
Quiet times of inspiration touch me and I feel
God's pure love is guiding me; His promises are real.
As I nurture those I love within my daily sphere,
I feel strength beyond my own and know that God is near.
And when I feel His love my heart has one desire:
To share the joy and warmth His perfect love inspires.
My hands reach out to all in purest charity
That other souls may feel God's love through me.
Heavenly Father's blessings, bestowed so lovingly,
Make my hands as His hands when the Spirit shines through me.
And when I feel His love my heart has one desire:
To share the joy and warmth His perfect love inspires.
My hands reach out to all in purest charity
That other souls may feel God's love through me.
That other souls may feel His love though me.
This song really touched me as it was so beautifully sung. And even more so on this Mother's Day. Today I especially feel the love of my Father in Heaven. I feel so blessed to be a mother to my sweet Zachary that I'm not sure I can fully express my emotions into words right now. He has entrusted me with the sweet spirit of this little boy. To raise him in this troubled world. I pray that I might do His will and teach Zachary the difference between right and wrong, truth and error, and teach him to hold to that iron rod.
I am also grateful to my own mother and mother-in-law! What wonderful mothers they are! We wish we could be there with you to celebrate this day but know that we are always thinking of you.

Thanks for the words to this song. I was searching google for them as I heard the song at Stake Conference this weekend and your blog was the only site that came up. Crazy thing is I'm in Andi Davis' ward (noticed her link in your blog list). Guess you might be related to her.

My sister played this song in her car couple of weeks ago. She played it while driving. I keep searching in youtube but couldn't find the right title, until I google and had memorize most of the lyrics. Thank you so much for posting and sharing! Indeed you are so blessed to have a beautiful spirit to love and raise him in this last days. He is a valiant one and I'm pretty sure you will be great and a perfect mother/parent to him.. Happy Mothers Day!

Hi Sister! I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. You may wonder who me? I'm seeking inspirations. I feel I was so far away from the Spirit. I only glance with my Book of Mormon and is hesitant.. I had prompt to play a music from my file. When the second music played, WHEN i FEEL HIS LOVE... I feel the music is nice and your site gave me the lyrics.. I'm emotionally crying right now.. :-( The lyrics was perfectly for me at this time.. this will be a favorite from this time one.. Thank you!
