Original text and translations

English.png English text

Love is a gentle hand
that pushes doubt away
and cradles all the promises
we keep from day to day.

Love is a quiet word
that bids the sun to shine
lights up my heart that I am yours
and yours that you are mine.

Love is a gentle hand
lhat keeps us safe and warm
holds precious times close to our heart
rides through any storm.

Love is a tower of strength,
a strength on which I draw
so I can love you all my days
and then for ever more.
