Praise & Worship Sunday

Gosh, I love this song! First of all, it's beautifully sung by the gifted David Phelps. But the words spell out what matters most in life. Life is wonderful and there are many, many beautiful things in which to find joy in the world we live in. But none of the lovely things we enjoy in life last forever. God's love does.

Love Goes On

Written and Performed by David Phelps

A shooting star tumbles down,

Its flame cannot endure.

A scarlet rose withers brown

To lose its fragrant lure.

The moon illuminates the night

To vanish at the dawn.

Oh, but love, love goes on.

*****

Fortunes fail and disappear,

Like castles in the sand.

Power spoils and causes fear,

But yields to stronger hands.

Fame lasts for a moment,

Then, in a moment, it is gone.

Oh, but love, love goes on.

*****

Beauty fades, and passion wanes,

And faces show their years.

Death steals a lover's touch away,

But time dries up the tears.

Tunes are soon forgotten,

And singers lose their song,

But love goes on.

*****

A baby Boy, a starlit night,

Kings on bended knee.

Healing hands giving sight,

Then tortured on a tree.

A woman sings, rejoicing,"He is risen, He is gone!"

Because love, love goes on.

Oh, love goes on.

Kathy,

Thank you so much. It is late but I read these words and felt such a sweet feeling. I so appreciate reading blogs on Saturday nights/Sunday mornings because so many of you have inspirational ways of urging us to celebrate God's love.

You are a sweetheart and may you have a blessed Sunday.
