He Said Love - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


Lyrics

There once was a man
Who was born to be king
He changed all our lives
And he made my heart sing
He turned water into wine
And called his fishermen
He cured the sick
The lame could walk
The blind could see again
He told us of the shepherds
And the flowers in the field
The story of the farmer's seed
And the harvest it would yield
He told us of two houses
And the man who lost his son
Of two men in the temple
And the good samaritan

Love
Only love's gonna take you higher
Love
Only love's gonna carry you home


He healed the soldier's servant
He calmed the raging sea
He shared five loaves and two small fish
And five thousand he did feed
He told the rich men share your wealth
He cured the ten sick men
He raised a friend called lazarus
And made him whole again

He said love
Only love's gonna take you higher
Love
Only love's gonna carry you home


He taught the children how to pray
The children he did bless
And mary came with perfume
Before his feet she wept
He gave us bread - his body
He gave us wine - his blood
He asked us all to live in peace
And nothing do but good
Now one friend did betray him
Another did deny
With arms outstretched he died
So all of mankind could survive

There once was a man
Who was born to be king
He'll change all your lives
If you'll just let him in

He said love
Only love's gonna take you higher
Love
Only love's gonna carry you home


Love and understanding carries you home

Love
Only love's gonna take you higher
Higher and higher
He said love
Only love's gonna carry you home
Love...
