What is love, but an emotion,
So strong and so pure,
That nurtured and shared with another All tests it will endure?
What is love, but a force
To bring the mighty low,
With the strength to shame the mountains
And halt time’s ceaseless flow?
What is love, but a triumph,
A glorious goal attained,
The union of two souls,
A bond the angels have ordained?
What is love, but a champion,
cast the tyrant from his throne,
And raise the flag of truth and peace,
fear of death overthrow?
What is love, but a beacon,
To guide the wayward heart,
A blazing light upon
That dash cherished dreams apart?
And what is love, but forever,
Eternal and sincere,
A flame that through wax and wane
Will outlive life’s
So I’ll tell it on the mountaintops,
In all places high and low,
That love for you is my reason to be,
And will never break or bow
