Posts Tagged ‘fill the world with love’


♫♪♫♪In the morning of my life I shall look to the sunrise.
At a moment in my life when the world is new.
And the blessing I shall ask is that God will grant me,
To be brave and strong and true,
And to fill the world with love my whole life through♪♪♫♪

I’ve had this LSS while I was watering the plants early this morning. I can’t get it out of my head.

It’s our dream to fill the world with love even in our small way, isn’t it?  I don’t actually dream of being famous. having your niche in this world is good enough. Showing kindness and compassion to others, helping those more needy than you are. Extending your hands to empathize and sympathize, smiling at those you meet on the streets. You see, the possibilities are endless. We just have to embrace love in our hearts.

And the song continues.

♫♫♪♪In the noontime of my life I shall look to the sunshine,
At a moment in my life when the sky is blue.
And the blessing I shall ask shall remain unchanging.
To be brave and strong and true,
And to fill the world with love my whole life through.

 In the evening of my life I shall look to the sunset,
At a moment in my life when the night is due.
And the question I shall ask only I can answer.
Was I brave and strong and true?
Did I fill the world with love my whole life through?♪♫♫♪

And we wonder, are we filling the world with love?  Back in the  70’s, the church choir  in the university where I studied used to sing this song every Saturday evening mass. It’s from the movie Goodbye, Mr. Chips. Just watched it on dailymotion.com.
