With vows given freely (Pachelbel Canon)

Hymn – With vows given freely – Lyrics

With vows given freely, such delight
Is pleasure reflected in God’s sight.
You follow His loving living sign;
In Jesus His gift to us divine:
A sign in the flying of a dove,
Ever present Spirit of his love,
A symbol of the God that is above
Reminds us life is good.

Your life is a thing to be enjoyed,
Not to be squandered or destroyed,
And laughter’s a part of God’s design,
Your joy is another gift divine: Refrain

So go to the lonely and the sad,
Speak of your joy and make them glad,
Hope’s light in your love will ever shine,
Your love is a holy gift divine: Refrain

So life can be hard and sometimes tough (Pachelbel Canon)

Hymn – So life can be hard and sometimes tough- Lyrics

So life can be hard and sometimes tough,
But there is both the smooth and rough;
For life can be great and here’s a sign,
In Jesus his holy gift divine:

A sign in the flying of a dove,
Ever present Spirit of his love,
A symbol of the God that is above
Reminds us life is good.

So life is a thing to be enjoyed,
And not to be wasted or destroyed.
For laughter is part of God’s design;
And joy is another gift divine: Refrain

So go to the lonely and the sad,
And give them your love and make them glad,
For helping the light of hope to shine,
Your gift is a love that is divine: Refrain
