We can’t do a thing without our God and King, You made the air I breathe and the shore that holds the sea 

THE GREATEST GIFT

by red words

 

Verse 1:

If I speak in the language of men and of angels - yet my heart has no love

And I preach with power all life's mysteries - and still my heart has no love

 

Pre-Chorus 1:

Then I'm just a clanging cymbal -  or an old rusty gate

 

Verse 2:

If I have faith to remove every mountain - Yet my heart has no love

And I feed all the hungry and lay down my life - But still I don't have love

 

Pre-Chorus 2:

Then I've nothing but a bankrupt heart - 'till I fill it up with love

 

Chorus:

The Greatest Gift is Love - It's better than faith

The Greatest Gift is Love - Better than hope

The Greatest Gift is Love - More than any other

The Greatest Gift is Love - And the gift of love's for you

 

Verse 3:

Some put power and fame first in life - And live their life without love

In the end their broken, tired and alone - Because their life had no love

 

Pre-Chorus 3:

It's never too late to turn around and live a life of grace

 

Repeat Chorus

 

Bridge:

We want to do what is right, but we can't - We want to do what is good, but we don't

We wanna do what is right and don't wanna do what is wrong, but somehow we do it anyway

I wanna put love first in my heart, who will free me from this body of death?

Only Love, Only Love - Only Love...

 

Repeat Chorus
