The Arms Of Love

Album: Songs From The Deep Field


v1) May the arms of love encompass all your present May the arms of love surround your every past May the arms of love cradle all your future In the only love that will ever last When the bad times blow, when it’s stormy weather When your hope lies scattered where the cold winds roam May the arms of love gather you together ‘Round a crackling fire in a place called home

CH: May the arms of love though the mountains crumble Ever wrap you ‘round closer than a glove And if it should be that you trip or stumble May you always fall in the arms of love

v2) And so now we take just one last cup of parting Starting down the road of our own separate ways The everlasting arms under and beside you There to guide you on, to comfort and amaze So until once more we weave our stories Though I can’t say where and I don’t know when May the arms of love bear to mind the glories Of the times we shared till we meet again - CH
