WE'RE A FAMILY
No matter where life may lead us four, We have faith, hope and charity, don't you see, Life together is blessed, who could ask for more, We'll be happy you see, 'cause we're a family.
Life may kick us in the shins and put us down, Though from work and heartaches we will not flee, But upon our faces you'll never see a frown, We'll be happy you see, 'cause we're a family.
We may sleep 'neath the stars, but we'll have love, We'll live from day to day, Darling we'll be free, We'll walk, talk, and listen to a lovely turtle dove, We'll be happy you see, 'cause we're a family.
And when the time comes that we are parted, We won't be sad, we trust God, you see, We'll look upon our kids, proud of what we've started, We'll be happy you see, 'cause we're a family.
Touched by an angel.
We, unaccustomed to courage, exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness, until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight, to liberate us into life.
Love arrives, and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure, ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold, love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.
We are weaned from our timidity, In the flush of love's light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see, that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love, which sets us free.
