Legacy of Love Lyrics

He was the kind of man that good men talk about
The way he showed his faith was how he lived it out.
His hands were rough and calloused and his shoes were old and torn
And the lines that framed his smile were lines so well and deep and worn.
So what will be remembered of what he left behind?
What will stand the test of time?


How to love your neighbor and how to love your wife
Wrap your arms around your children and pray with them each night.
Thank God for all the good things 'cause the good things are enough
The ties that bind and leave behind a legacy of love.

He worked a second job to make the ends all meet
But somehow managed to always be there for me.
Showed me how to listen and how to stand for what is right
And taught me all the things that really matter in this life.


As I look into the eyes of my daughters and my sons
I hope I've stood for something that they'll want to carry on
'Cause life is far too short not to finally realize
That its long enough to make a difference in someone's life.


So I'm gonna love my neighbor and I'm gonna love my wife
Wrap my arms around my children and pray with them each night.
Thank God for all the good things cause the good things are enough
The ties that bind and leave behind a legacy of love

A great, unsung hero lived in my community. He volunteered at the fire department, took time to get to know people, and was always there to lend a hand to anyone in need. When he passed away unexpectedly, our whole town mourned and I found myself asking the question, "Who could possibly take his place?" The answer has to be "me". In a world that is skeptical toward Christians and is honestly asking the question, "Why?" when faced with the choice of Christianity, I think it's relevance lies in the simplicity of Jesus' words...Love God and love each other.
