love is still a worthy cause

have you listed all the times you’ve tried
do you call on all your alibis
when somebody asks the question why are you hiding?

did you feel the pull, did you hear the call
did you take a chance and lose it all
do you fear there’s no collateral left for trying?

friend i know your heart is raw
but love is still a worthy cause
picking up and pressing on
oh love is still a worthy cause
like the touch that starts the thaw
oh, love is such a worthy cause
or the word that breaks the pause

in the midst of passing bravery
in the face of our own injuries
is the constant generosity of grace

it’s the beauty in the tales we tell
it’s the pressing on and ending well
it’s the joy that comes when we give our self away

chorus

i love because he loved me when i had nothing
i love because you loved me when i had nothing
i love because he loved me when i had nothing
i had nothing

when you count the cost and all seems lost
love is still a worthy cause
when you’re pressing on though your strength is gone
love is still a worthy cause

oh, love is still a worthy cause
oh, love is still a worthy cause
oh, love
