We love him because he first loved us | 1 John 3:19.

‘Tis not that I did choose Thee,
For, Lord, that could not be.
This heart would still refuse Thee,
Hadst Thou not chosen me.
My heart owns none before Thee,
For Thy rich grace I thirst,
This knowing – If I love Thee
Thou must have loved me first!

(poem – Josiah Conder, as quoted by Don Fortner: “Basic Bible Doctrine”, 405 – adapted)
