When you Love

written for a friend’s wedding and recorded by Larry Jensen
When you love like these two do, hope flies in the land.
The nuthatch hugs the turtle dove, chickadees form a band.
O won’t you come all here today, come and join our hands.
Lets wish them joy and harmony and a song as sweet as the land.
Lets wish them joy and harmony and a song as sweet as the land.

When you love like these two do, anything is possible.
Blue whales dive in Georgian Bay, their song quite audible.
O won’t you come all here today, come and join our hands.
Let’s wish them joy and harmony and a song as sweet as the land.
Lets wish them joy and harmony and a song as sweet as the land.

When you love like these two do, you love it all.
Snow in June, the dark of the moon, every stumble and fall.
O won’t you come all here today, come and join in song.
Let’s wish them health and harmony and a life together long.
Let’s rejoice for such love and sing ‘til the morning comes.
Let’s rejoice for such love and sing ‘til the morning comes.
