Love forgiving
Love for good
Love to keep us faithful
After all is said and done
Love is all that matters

Got this beautiful situation
I've finally found out
What life's about
Want to talk about it
In my conversation
Going to tell the world
Going to sing it
From the highest mountain top

Love forgiving
Love for good
Love to keep us faithful
After all is said and done
Love is all that matters

Every person pledge allegiance
All our efforts
To one common cause
Take a minute to improve a life
Form a legion
That's united for a love cause

Love forgiving
Love for good
Love to keep us faithful
After all is said and done
Love is all that matters
