Unending love, embraced by loving arms
Unending love, warmed by loving thoughts
Unending love, cherished by loving hearts
Unending love, soothed by loving hands

In every need, in every fear, in every grief, in every hour
Constant strength, constant faith, constant companion, constant friend.

Unending love, beheld by loving eyes
Unending love, healed by loving prayer
Unending love, lifted by loving minds
Unending love, blessed by loving touch.

Never alone, never apart, never lost, never without hope
Always at peace, always aware, always protected, always loved.

In every need [never alone] in every fear [never apart]
in every grief [never lost] in every hour [never without hope]
Constant strength [always at peace] constant faith [always aware]
constant companion [always protected] constant friend [always loved]

Unending love, embraced by loving arms
Unending love, warmed by loving thoughts
Unending love, lifted by loving minds
Unending love, blessed by loving touch.
Unending love, blessed by loving touch.

In a world of broken promises,
fickle friends and Doubting Thomases,
I'm so glad that you are mine.
In the midst of life's uncertainties,
lonely nights and soliloquies,
I thank God our lives entwine.

Year after year in my life, I've heard love's happy song,
But this is the first time ever I've wanted to sing along.
I never thought I'd be happy. Now with you, I know I shall be.
I'll sing my own songs forever,  I'll write my own poetry.

CHORUS:     
For you are my very first love song, my life, my breath and my soul.
You're the sweetest note of a ballad, the rock in my rock 'n' roll.
You are the joy in a beautiful hymn, my strength, my hope and my fire.
You're ev'ry note in a lullaby, and ev'ry voice in the choir.

With so much pain in my world, I thought you couldn't exist,
But your precious love proved me wrong that very first moment we kissed.
Now ev'ry day is a miracle, a reason to walk in the sun,
And I never cry when it's over, for a joyous night has begun.

CHORUS:     
For you are my very first love song, my life, my breath and my soul.
You're the sweetest note of a ballad, the rock in my rock 'n' roll.
You are the joy in a beautiful hymn, my strength, my hope and my fire.
You're ev'ry note in a lullaby, and ev'ry voice in the choir.

You are my very first love song, my port in a raging storm.
You're light in a distant window that guides me home safe and warm.
You are my very first love song, my ev'ry reason to be,
And for all the days left in your life, I hope they'll be spent with me.
I hope they'll be spent with me.  I hope they'll be spent — with me.

CHORUS:
Woman to Woman, Soul to Soul, Light to Light, Hope to Hope
Woman to Woman, Soul to Soul, Light to Light, Hope to Hope

We travel together, consumed in love
In a world we're creating
with strength from above.
We reach for our future hand in hand,
And we're reaping the fruit
of the promised land.

CHORUS:
Woman toWoman, Soul to Soul, Light to Light, Hope to Hope
Woman to Woman, Soul to Soul, Light to Light, Hope to Hope

There are no rules or reasons on this journey we make,
But we have a vision of a world without heartache.
The faith and the power of all we esteem
Bring sweet understanding to mold our dream.

CHORUS:
Woman to Woman, Soul to Soul, Light to Light, Hope to Hope
Woman to Woman, Soul to Soul, Light to Light, Hope to Hope

We'll stand for each other side to side;
We've laid our hearts open, left nothing to hide.
So come take my hand now; this is our home,
This day and this season, this life that we own.

CHORUS:
Woman to Woman, Soul to Soul, Light to Light, Hope to Hope
Woman to Woman, Soul to Soul, Light to Light, Hope to Hope
