Love Without End Amen lyrics

Love without end amen

I got sent home from school one day with a shiner on my eye
Fightin was against the rules and it didnt matter why
When dad got home I told that story just like Id rehearsed
Then stood there on those tremblin knees and waitin for the worst

And he said...

Let me tell you a secret about a fathers love
A secret that my daddy said was just between us
He said daddies dont just love their children every now and then
Its a love without end, amen
Its a love without end, amen

When I became a father in the spring of 81
There was no doubt that stubborn boy was just like my fathers son
And when I thought my patience had been tested to the end
I took my daddys secret and passed it on to him

I said...

Repeat chorus

Last night I dreamed Id died and stood outside those pearly gates
When suddenly I realized there must be some mistake
If they know half the things Ive done, theyll never let me in
Then somewhere from the other side, I heard these words again

And they said...

Repeat chorus
