Memories are a great gift
Memories are given to us by God
As a keepsake and a treasure
Memories allow us to call upon the past

Memories can teach us
About what things are good to repeat
Memories they warn us
About what things should never
Be allowed to happen again

Memories are a gift of the past
That we hold in the present
To create what can be a great future
Treasure and keep memories
For the sake of
For the sake of
For the sake of life
For the sake of
For the sake of
For the sake of life

Memories offer us opportunities
To laugh, or to cry
Memories offer us opportunities
To smile, or to reminisce

Memories can teach us
About what things are good to repeat
Memories they warn us
About what things should never
Be allowed to happen again

Memories are a gift of the past
That we hold in the present
To create what can be a great future
Treasure and keep memories
For the sake of
For the sake of
For the sake of life
For the sake of
For the sake of
For the sake of life

If we oupen our mind
Memories allow and offer
And help and support
And teach and warn about life

Memories can teach us
About what things are good to repeat
Memories they warn us
About what things should never
Be allowed to happen again

Memories are a gift of the past
That we hold in the present
To create what can be a great future
Treasure and keep memories
For the sake of
For the sake of
For the sake of life
For the sake of
For the sake of
For the sake of life
