Some would sail the seven seas and cross the great divide
To find the perfect ecstasy to fill the heart and mind
Body and soul, we search for meaning
Before learning just what love is

Some would say a sudden flame, a passion prone to passing
To other just a distant dream, never meant for them
So many souls would find their meaning,
If they first would learn what love is

What is love?
To lay your life down to save another.
What is love?
To give yourself to those who don't deserve
When mercy smooths the furrowed brow of justice
We will understand what love is

Jesus calmed the stormy seas and crossed the great divide
Hes the perfect ecstasy to fill the heart and mind
Body and soul, the search is over
We found Jesus, He's what love is

What is love?
To lay your life down to save another.
What is love?
To give yourself to those who don't deserve
When mercy smooths the furrowed brow of justice
We will understand what love is

It took love like this to make us His
Jesus came to show us just what love is

To lay your life down to save another.
(This is love)
Fidelity to those who don't deserve
When mercy smooths the furrowed brow of justice
We will understand what love is
