    Lyrics for Love Education
    So here I am in solo fashion
    I sit alone inside my passion
    Counting my years, all of my tears
    I’ve cried a million, conquered my fears
    The battle’s won, over and done
    And yet I know that I’ve only begun…
    Love education
    Graduation from sin
    That’s all it really is, baby
    Love education
    Graduation from sin
    So there you were, your heart was broken, oh, yeah
    Burdened with pain, words left unspoken
    Don’t worry none, daughter nor son
    Love’s many lessons, this is just one
    Love saw you through, made you brand new
    And it’s an honor to welcome you to…
    Love education
    Graduation from sin
    That’s all it really is, baby
    Love education
    Graduation from sin
    That’s all it really is, baby
    Oh, baby, sweet love
    Talkin’ ’bout love, love, baby
    That’s all it really is
    That’s all it is
    Love, love, love
    You know we all need it
    Love is a healer and it saves
    Oh, love is amazing, my dear
    Somebody sing with me
    Love is very patient
    Love is very kind
    Love is never boastful, baby
    Love is never proud, haughty or loud
    Love is very peaceful
    Does not demand its own way, baby
    And it bears all things
    Believes all things
    Hopes all things
    Endures all things
    Love is amazing
    And it keeps getting stronger
    Every time you smile
    I think you better just hang on
    For a little while longer, my dear
    Paint a pretty smile each day
    Love is a blessing, oh…
    My dear

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!

This is the kind of information we needed posted so that we could hear truth! May God continue to work in your lives, as you continue to share truth with others. The gospel of Jesus Christ is first and foremost. Scripture trumps everything; not the other way around.

James Rothstein ,

Thanks so much!

God bless you both!

Interesting and Informative

Thank you for your honesty and unflinching commitment to speaking the truth in love. It's refreshing to know that people can leave the "Message of the Hour" and continue to pursue Jesus and the Bible, the one and only true Voice of God.
