11. Legacy Of Love

Life Is A Church
by David Phelps


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, 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

By David Phelps/Cindy Morgan

Behind the Song:
"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 its relevance lies in the simplicity of Jesus’ words: Love God and love each other." - David Phelps
