Garden of Love
If faith can move a mountain
And hope could change the world,
What a wonderful place we would live in
If love could be unfurled.
Vision love as tiny seeds
That could be planted everywhere;
Soon they would sprout and grow
As we tended them with care.
When the time is ripe for harvesting,
We'll see love in sweet repose.
Then let everyone help to gather it
In the garden of love; where it grows.
Love should not be stored unused
Nor should it be restrained.
But we may keep it in our hearts
Where it pours out unrestrained.
Shirley Hile Powell
Psalm 23:6 Only goodness and love will pursue me all the days of my life. I will dwell in the house of the Lord for years to come.
