Lionel Richie – Jesus Is Love (Long Version) lyrics

Father, help your children
And don't let them fall
By the side of the road

And teach them
To love one another
That heaven might find
A place in their hearts

'Cause Jesus is love
He won't let you down
And I know He's mine forever
Oh, in my heart

We've got to walk on
Walk on through temptation
'Cause His love and His wisdom
Will be our helpin' hand

And I know the truth
And His words will be our salvation
Lift up our hearts
To be thankful and glad

That Jesus is love
He won't let you down
And I know He's mine
Deep down in my soul

Jesus is love, oh, yes, He is
He won't let you down
And I know He's mine
He's mine, He's mine, all mine
Forever, oh, in my heart

Help me, heart, heart
(Deep in my heart)
I know, I know
I know, I know

Ah, 'cause His love's the power
His love's the glory
(Ever and ever)

Ooh, yeah
(Yeah, yeah)
Ooh, yeah
(Yeah, yeah)
Ooh, yeah, yeah
(Yeah, yeah)

I wanna follow your star
Wherever it leads me
And I don't mind, Lord
I hope you don't mind

I wanna walk with You
And talk with You
And do all the things
You want me to do

'Cause I know that Jesus
(Jesus is love, I know)
'Cause I know, Lord
(And if you ask)
I'll show
(Love is the word)
Forever and ever and ever

Who can bring you love?
Who can bring you joy?
Who can turn your life around, oh?

Ooh, yeah
(Yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah)

Who will pick you up
Ooh, when you fall?
Who'll stand beside you?
Who will love us all?

Hey, hey, Jesus
(Yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah)
Oh, yeah
(Yeah, yeah)

One thing I wanna say
Who can heal your body?
Who can make it strong?
Who can help you hold out
A little while longer?

Ooh, yeah
(Yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah)
Jesus love you, Jesus wants you
(Yeah, yeah)
If you call Him, He will answer

Call him in the mornin'
Call him in the evenin'
Call him in the midnight hour

Oh, hey
(Yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeah
(Yeah, yeah)
Yeah, y'all say it for me
