467 ~ Life Is Great! So Sing About It
Life is great! So sing about it, As we can and as we should- Shop and buses, towns and people, Village, farmland, field and wood, Life is great and life is given; Life is lovely, free and good.
Life is great!- what ever happens, Snow or sunshine, joy or pain, Hardship, grief or disillusion, Suffering that I can't explain- Life is great if someone loves me, Holds my hand and calls my name.
Love is great!- the love of lovers, Whispered words and longing eyes; Love that gazes at the cradle Where a child of loving lies; Love that lasts when youth has faded, Bends with age, but never dies.
Love is giving and receiving- Boy and girl, or friend with friend; Love is bearing and forgiving All the hurts that hate can send; Love's the greatest way of living, Hoping, trusting to the end.
God is great! in Christ He loved us, As we should, but never can- Love that suffered, hoped and trusted When disciples turned and ran, Love that broke through death forever. Praise that loving, living Man!
