Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that's what you do

Oh the morning sun in all its glory
Greets the day with hope and comfort too
And you fill my life with laughter
You can make it better
Ease my troubles that's what you do

There's a love that's divine
And it's yours and it's mine
Like the sun
At the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray to the One

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that's what you do

There's a love that's divine
And it's yours and it's mine
And it shines like the sun
At the end of the day we will give thanks
And pray to the One

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles, that's what you do

Take away my sadness
Fill my life with gladness
Ease my troubles that's what you do
Fill my life with gladness
Take away my sadness
Ease my troubles that's what you do.

    General Comment:Beautiful love song. Probably just as good as John Hiatt's "Have a little faith in me".

    General Comment:As with al Van Morrison songs, i think its just as much about his union with God, as it is his union with his Girl.

    Some of the things he says, i think, are more trying to put emotions into words, than actual actions, its more metaphorical than anything.

    General Comment:It's not a love song to a woman, he's expressing his love for God.

    Have I told you lately that I love you
    Have I told you there's no one above you
    Fill my heart with gladness
    Take away my sadness
    Ease my troubles, that's what you do
    Oh the morning sun in all its glory
    Greets the day with hope and comfort too
    And you fill my life with laughter
    You can make it better
    Ease my troubles that's what you do

    General Comment:Before my husband and I were married this was our song. I think the lyrics are beautiful...they tell such compassion and admiration for another love. Another smash by Van the Man!
