Kris Kristofferson

Love is the Way


Deep in the heart of the infinite darkness

A tiny blue marble is spinning through space

Born in the splendor of God's holy vision

And sliding away like a tear down his face


Closer you see the whole wide, holy wonder

Of oceans, and mountains, and rivers, and trees

And the strangest creation of many, the human

A creature of laughter, and freedom, and dreams



Now the warriors are waving their old rusty sabers

And the preachers are preaching a gospel of hate

By their behavior determined to teach us

A lesson we're soon to be learning too late


Look closer, my brother, we're killing each other

And we'd better stop, and get started today

Because life is the question, and life is the answer

And God is the reason, and love is the way
