In the beginning as life became form
The oceans heaved, the mountains were cleaved
The firmament stormed
At the center of being, immensely small
Was the Master, now don't ask me how, the love of it all

And the seasons were many, creation was new
And there on a tree, deceptively free, a forbidden fruit
Upon leaving the garden, after the fall
One thing was clear; we chose not to hear the love of it all

But for the love of it all I would go anywhere
To the ends of the earth, oh, what is it worth if love would be there?
Walking the thin line between fear and the call
One learns to bend and finally depend on the love of it all

"Irresistible targets", I've heard someone say
They were speaking of angels who are so courageous day after day
Gunned down on a highway, as we often recall
I hear a scream, I have a dream, the love of it all

Still the world is in labor, she groans in travail
She cries with the eagle, the dolphin
She sighs in the song of the whale
While the heart of her people prays at the wall
A spirit inside is preparing a bride for the love of it all

For the Love of it all, like the stars and the sun
We are hearts on the rise, separate eyes with the vision of one.
No valley too deep, no mountain too tall
We can turn back the night with merely the light of the love of it all

And so we are marching 'to give peace a chance'
Brother and sister as one in this mystery dance
Long ago on a hilltop where now the curious crawl
Well, a man on a cross paid the ultimate cost for the love of it all

For the love of it all we are gathered by grace
We have followed our hearts to take up our parts in this time and place
Hands for the harvest, we hear the centuries call
It is still not too late to come celebrate the love of it all

'Eli, eli, lemana shabakthani'
The love of it all
