Dear Lord, “I Love You This Much,” more than I love myself. The Lord’s love for us is irreplaceable. His wonderful words bring us comfort but why do other people still seek for love? Some people, like children, who are so eager for their parent’s love and acceptance. Children are being rebellious sometimes because they have not experienced love from their parents. It is true that nowadays, some parents abandon their child after birth. They do that because of unreadiness or poverty, but whatever the reason may be, always keeps in mind that every child is a blessing from the Lord.

About the Song

“I Love You This Much” is a heartbreaking song that tells about the narrator’s love for his father. The narrator attempts to express his love to his father even if his father is so distant. He grew up hating his father to the point that he even cursed his father. He had not experienced having a great time with his father even once. Later, his father died. The most heartbreaking part of being a child is seeing your parent’s death without having the chance of telling them how much you love them. During his father’s funeral, he sees an image of Jesus. The image reminded him that he was not unloved and alone.
