There are things you can pray in your prayers
That you can't sing in your songs
It's like the dreams that lovers share
When they're safely resting in the promise of a love that lasts
Though it leads them on to walk a steeper path
And so sometimes you pray and sometimes you sing
And when you love you thank the Lord for everything

There's a rest you can find in your work
That you can't get out of sleep
And there's a healing that may hurt
And there's a war that must be waged for peace
It don't come ready made
And if you want to be free you must become a slave
And so sometimes you work and sometimes you rest
But when you love you know it all works out for the best

Oh, when you love (When you love)
Oh, when you love (When you love)
Oh, when you love (When you love)
Oh, when you love (When you love)
Oh, when you love

There are things you can sing in your songs
When you've learned them in your prayers
And there's a rest that makes you strong
For the work that you've been called to share
In with the sons of Light
And if the Lord should tarry long enough you just might
See that the times were good
Although the times were hard
And when you love you know you've got to thank the Lord

When you love (you gotta thank the Lord)
You gotta love the Lord
When you love
You gotta love the Lord
You gotta love the Lord
You gotta love the Lord
