Love More—Jef Scoville

Prayed to my mother
I said mother, please
Show me the difference
Between those people and me
She said, well son
They’re all the same with the call
You will see that plainly as you
Learn to love more.

She told me, well heaven
Is not beyond you
Affection is the door
You will see that plainly as you
Learn to love more
As you learn to love more

I said to my sister
How can you be
So very forgiving
Of all my brothers and me?
She said, well brother
What would I be angry for?
We can heal the anger
As we learn to love more

She told me, well heaven
Is not beyond us.
Affection is the door
We can heal the anger as we
Learn to love more.
As we learn to love more

I said to my brother
Do you realize?
Our children got guns in their pockets
They’ve got hatred in their eyes?
He said, well brother
We can avert this war
We can heal the hatred
As we learn to love more

He told me, well heaven
Is not beyond us
Affection is the door
We can heal the hatred as we
Learn to love more
As we learn to love more

Finally, I prayed to my Father
I said Father, please
Show me what I can do about this disease
He said, well son
The answer you’re looking for
Is you can heal anything
As you learn to love more

He told me well heaven
Is not beyond you
Affection is the door
You can heal anything as you
Learn to love more
As you learn to love more
