All That Matters

(bryan field mcfarland ₪ sassafrasongs)
Bryan Field McFarland
Written in 2006 to both celebrate a wedding AND to say goodbye to First Presbyterian, Gallatin, TN, this song is serving as my theme song these days.
..................... L :: Y :: R :: I :: C :: S .....................

All that matters to the bottomline / Is that it all adds up to more
All that matters to the waterline / Is how it laps upon the shore
All that matters when we've run our race /
Before the living from us scatters
Are all the facets of amazing grace / Love is truly all that matters

Side to side and up & down - This right relationship
Turned about and turned around - This gift, this life, this flip
Us & them and you & me - Climbing all life's ladders
Love is woven thoroughly - And love is all that matters

Jesus gave us this decree (Love each other)
"Do this and my friends you'll be" (Love each other)
"Be at home here in my love" (Love each other)
"Here on earth as up above" (Love each other)
Love is patient, love is kind (Love each other)
Love is in and through the daily grind (Love each other)
Love endures beyond the chatter (Love each other)
God is Love and love is all...that...matters.

Side to side and up & down - This right relationship
Turned about and turned around - This gift, this life, this flip
Us & them and you & me - Climbing all life's ladders
Love is woven thoroughly - And love is all that matters
