David Phelps – Legacy Of Love lyrics

He was the kind of man that good men talk about
The way he showed his faith was how he lived it out.
His hands were rough and calloused and his shoes were old and torn
And the lines that framed his smile were lines so well and deep and worn.
So what will be remembered of what he left behind?
What will stand the test of time?

Chorus

How to love your neighbor and how to love your wife
Wrap your arms around your children and pray with them each night.
Thank God for all the good things 'cause the good things are enough
The ties that bind and leave behind a legacy of love.

He worked a second job to make the ends all meet
But somehow managed to always be there for me.
Showed me how to listen and how to stand for what is right
And taught me all the things that really matter in this life.

Chorus

As I look into the eyes of my daughters and my sons
I hope I've stood for something that they'll want to carry on
'Cause life is far too short not to finally realize
That its long enough to make a difference in someone's life.

Chorus

So I'm gonna love my neighbor and I'm gonna love my wife
Wrap my arms around my children and pray with them each night.
Thank God for all the good things cause the good things are enough
The ties that bind and leave behind a legacy of love
