I Won’t Take Less Than Your Love…

"How much do I owe you?" said the husband to his wife,
"For standing beside me through the hard years of my life.
"Shall I bring you diamonds, shall I buy you furs?
"Say the word and it's yours.


And his wife said: "I won't take less than your love, sweet love.
"No, I won't take less than your love.
"All the riches of the world could never be enough,
"And I won't take less than your love."


"How much do I owe you?" to the mother said the son.
"For all that you have taught me in the days that I was young.
"Shall I bring expensive blankets to cast upon your bed?
"And a pillow for to rest your weary head."


And the mother said: "I won't take less than your love, sweet love.
"No, I won't take less than your love.
"All the comforts of the world could never be enough,
"And I won't take less than your love."


"How much do I owe you?" said the man to his Lord.
"For giving me this day and every day that's gone before.
"Shall I build a temple, shall I make a sacrifice?
"Tell me Lord and I will pay the price."


And the Lord said: "I won't take less than your love, sweet love.
"No, I won't take less than your love.
"All the treasures of the world could never be enough,
"And I won't take less than your love."


"I won't take less than your love, sweet love.
"No, I won't take less than your love.
"All the treasures of the world could never be enough,
"And I won't take less than your love."
"No, I won't take less than your love."

writers Paul Davis and Paul Overstreet

One of my very favorite songs.  If you have your speakers on you will hear it playing.

Have a peaceful Sunday.  Give thanks to God if you are here to enjoy it.

Stay safe and be happy!!

  4. Hi Beth,

    The Lord has my love and I know He loves me. I know I am still questioning His Timing at the moment. Everything but everything seems so unsettled. However, one step at a time, one day at a time, thank you for all your prayers and encouragement.

    Hugs Nita.

  12. At first I thought you had written a country tune. I would have been happy to set it to music. You could call your album. "The Country Stylings of Beth". We'd make millions...uhh...maybe not.

    Sometimes writing lyrics is much tougher than the music.
    My leg is doing ok.I can get around but I go to work tomorrow for the first time in 16 days. I'll see how well I manage. Just call me Hopalong.
