Love Makes a Bridge

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Brian Wren
Tune Name: OLDS

Lyrics as Poetry

LOVE makes a bridge
from heart to heart, and hand to hand.
LOVE finds a way,
when laws are blind, and freedom banned.LOVE breaks the walls
of language, gender, class and age
LOVE gives us wings
to slip the bars of every cage.LOVE lifts the hopes
that force and fear have beaten down.
LOVE breaks the chains
and gives us strength to stand our ground.LOVE rings the bells
of wanted birth and wedding day.
LOVE guides the hands
that promise more than words can say.LOVE makes a bridge
that winds may shake, yet not destroy.
LOVE carries faith
through life and death, to endless joy.
