Love Comes Through
Flowers aren't fragrant for themselves
Birds don't sing for their own pleasure
Trees don't eat of their own fruit
Rivers don't drink from their own depths
Mountains don't shade their own peaks
The sun doesn't shine to warm itself
And Jesus didn't die for nothing.
People aren't here to live alone,
We're born for one another.
Living to bless others is life.
When that light shines true,
Its beams are most radiant
Love comes through.
