Philippa Hanna – Loved Me First Lyrics

[Verse 1]
My pockets were empty, I had nothing to give
I was Your enemy, You called me Your friend
Why do I find myself trying to earn it?
You gave it all when I didn't deserve it

[Pre-Chorus]
Who am I to question why?
You said it was worth it

[Chorus]
I found life when You laid Yours down
Some kind of hope when I opened my hands
And love unending, when I was empty
You healed my hurt
And You saw beauty when You saw these scars
Some kind of treasure buried in this heart
Why should I ever, why should I ever doubt my worth?
I'll remember that You loved me first
Remember that You loved me first

[Verse 2]
So hidden in shame, I thought nobody could find me
But nothing could stop You from chasing behind me, mm
So why do I find myself trying to earn this?
You gave it all when I didn't deserve it
[Chorus]
I found life when You laid Yours down
Some kind of hope when I opened my hands
And love unending, when I was empty
You healed my hurt
And You saw beauty when You saw these scars
Some kind of treasure buried in this heart

Why should I ever, why should I ever doubt my worth?
I'll remember that You loved me first
Remember that You loved me first

[Bridge]
I love You 'cause You first loved me
I'm learning how to let You hold me
I love You 'cause You first loved me
I'm learning, I'm learning
I love You 'cause You first loved me
I'm learning how to let You hold me
I love You 'cause You first loved me
And I'm learning, I'm learning

[Chorus]
That I find life when I lay it down
Some kind of healing when I open my hands
And love unending, when I was empty
You healed my hurt
I find life when I lay it down
Some kind of healing when I open my hands
And love unending, when I was empty
You healed my hurt
And You saw beauty when You saw these scars
Some kind of treasure buried in this heart
Why should I ever, why should I ever doubt my worth?
I'll just remember that You loved me first
Remember that You loved me first
Remember that You loved me first
[Outro]
Remember that You loved me
