Love is but a song to sing
Fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Some may come and some may go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunlight
Fading in the grass

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)
You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand
Just one key unlocks them both
It's there at your command

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Right now
Right now

    General CommentI am an old hippie. It is my favorite song...years later it still tells you to love one another...maybe it is the answer.

    General CommentI feel they are saying get it together now ,before The Lord returns. The verse (until the one who left us here returns for us at last)! This has to be Jesus. They mention about how we are just a vapor. Here for a little while and then vanish away. But not gone ,just back to God , who will judge us. Read James 4:14. James was Jesus half brother. How cool is that. Cooler than this song, but of all the 60's songs this one is the coolest. Later

    General CommentIt's a call for peace and brotherhood of all people in the late 60s. Hippie songs as they're jknown now.
