Many are “Looking for Love,” but unable to find it because they don’t know what it is.
Many are “Looking for Love,” but unable to find it because they don’t know what it is.
In the early eighties there was a popular song sung by a group called Foreigner, backed up by the Jersey Mass Choir. The song title was, “I want to know what love is”. It goes something like this:
This mountain I must climb
Seems like the world upon my shoulders
I have nowhere left to hide
Seems that love have finally found me
In my life there have been heartache and pain
I don’t know if can face it again
But I can’t stop down
I have traveled to far to face this lonely life
I want ‘ta know
I want ta know what love is
I want you to tell me
I want’ta know
I want ta know what love is
He Is All I Want
The Lord is my Savior, He is all I want. As I walk up the King’s Highway He walks beside me. He maketh me to lie down in a soft bed at night. He gives me sweet rest till morning light. He bountifully spreads a table before me three times a day. Yea, though I should walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for He walketh with me and will never leave me. He refreshes me many times a day along the way from the wells of Heaven and when we get to the end of the highway we will enter His kingdom, and I shall rest and sing for joy throughout eternity.
—E. M. Arcuri
