Music: How you love me by Sonia Martins



Nigerian-Canadian music minister, Sonia Martins a.k.a smartmusique releases her debut single, HOW YOU LOVE

Although composed and written in collaboration with Kunle Ben and Divine Oribhabor, Sonia Martins initially composed the melody of the chorus and a good portion of the final lyrics, as a personal reflection of God’s amazing love for her.

Sonia was inspired to sing the chorus while doing the dishes in her home in January 2017. The kitchen is not an unusual place of song inspiration for Sonia, as she confesses to having other original songs initially composed in the kitchen. Something about the soap lathering as the sponge moves over the dish’s surface or the coolness which the water brings to Sonia’s hands sets her heart to worship or express her thoughts in songs. The kitchen chorus had been left, almost forgotten in Sonia’s files of spontaneous voice recordings until late in January 2020. As if the heavens could no longer watch the song’s potential waste away, the chorus popped back in Sonia’s head and her mouth sung what she could remember of the song. This time, another ear had been strategically positioned to analyze and reveal the song’s potential to Sonia, as well as give her the needed push to share the song with the world.

How You Love is written from a place of admiration and gratitude for God’s amazing love towards humankind. The song expresses the awe that engulfs one who recognizes Christ’s sacrifice for humankind’s redemption. The song also reminds Christians of God’s unwavering love as described in Romans 8:38-39.

Sonia Martins
Sonia’s greatest desire for this song is that people who listen are encouraged in the Christian faith and can express their awe and appreciation of God’s love through this song.


Lyrics of how you love me by Sonia Martins

Who am I that You mindful of me
That You died on the cross of Calvary
Who am I that You gave everything
So that I can live to see Your beauty
It’s amazing how You love me
How you hold me close
It’s amazing how You picked me up
When I was six feet low

It’s amazing how You love me
How You hold me close
You looked on my imperfections
You said I deserve grace
It’s amazing oh oh oh oh
It’s amazing You gave your life
Conquered the grave, gave me victory

And now, I am Your own
Joint heir with Christ, blessings are mine
It’s amazing how You love me
How You hold me close
It’s amazing how You picked me up
When I was six feet low
It’s amazing how You love me

How You hold me close
You looked on my imperfections
You said I deserve grace
It’s amazing oh oh oh oh
It’s amazing In the storms of life and fiery fire
I am covered by your love
No depth no height, not death not life
Can separate me from your love

It’s amazing how You love me
How You hold me close
It’s amazing how You picked me up
When I was six feet low I
it’s amazing how You love me
How You hold me close

You looked on my imperfections
You said I deserve grace
It’s amazing oh oh oh oh
It’s amazing
