The ground that hatred has gained will be retaken by love;

the losses that we’ve sustained

will be remembered by love;

the tears that we’ve cried

will be wiped away by love;

the pain and grief inside

will be healed by love;

a world that seems divided

will be remade by love;

this fight is one-sided –

the universe was built by love

and it was made to bring us together;

love is patient, kind, formidable, invincible

and it’s the only thing that will last forever.

Not even death can defeat love.

So all of the sorrow and the loneliness,

all of the anger and bitterness

and confusion and brokenness

will be outflanked, outdone,

outmatched and overcome

by love.
