"I Won't Take Less Than You Love" as written by Don Schlitz and Paul Overstreet....
How much do I owe you? said the husband to his wife,
For standing beside me through the hard years of my life.
Shall I bring you diamonds, shall I buy you furs?
Say the word and it's yours.
And his wife said: I won't take less than your love, sweet love.
No, I won't take less than your love.
All the riches of the world could never be enough,
And I won't take less than your love.

How much do I owe you? to the mother said the son.
For all that you have taught me in the days that I was young.
Shall I bring expensive blankets to cast upon your bed?
And a pillow for to rest your weary head.

And the mother said: I won't take less than your love, sweet love.
No, I won't take less than your love.
All the comforts of the world could never be enough,
And I won't take less than your love.

How much do I owe you? said the man to his Lord.
For giving me this day and every day that's gone before.
Shall I build a temple, shall I make a sacrifice?
Tell me Lord and I will pay the price.

And the Lord said: I won't take less than your love, sweet love.
No, I won't take less than your love.
All the treasures of the world could never be enough,
And I won't take less than your love.

I won't take less than your love, sweet love.
No, I won't take less than your love.
All the treasures of the world could never be enough,
And I won't take less than your love.

No, I won't take less than your love.
