Loving You

My soul, as are the souls of others, as God chooses, is compelled to love, desire and serve God, no matter what. We falter, we fail, we don’t always know what God thinks or feels about us but we press on as if there is no choice. It is an irresistible and unconscious force in spite of everything.

Loving You

Loving You, loving You,

Loving You is all I can do.

Even when I’m sad or mad,

Whether You think I’m good or bad,

Loving You is all I can do.


Lethbridge, AB; September 24, 1983 (verse 1)

Wanting You, wanting You,

Wanting You is all I can do.

Even when I’m rich or poor,

Whether it seems I’m not so sure,

Wanting You is all I can do.


Serving You, serving You,

Serving You is all I can do.

Even when I’m weak or strong,

Whether they think I’m right or wrong,

Serving You is all I can do.


Bernalillo, NM; March 1985 (verses 2 & 3)

Later, at the computer, I began to amuse myself with the rest of the words, while Marilyn stood by thinking I was being silly. I was but I wasn't. Words quickly and smoothly came forth to express the present theme of my life that was unfolding beyond my understanding. Call it inspiration.                                                                                                     Now, what about a tune? Would it take long, as it has with some other songs? I took up my guitar, went to D, then E, G, and A, timing the words with the chords. I partly but naturally adopted a kind of nasal, aged voice by the spirit of the song, which Marilyn also had questions about but I loved it to tears and here it is. I call it Take Two, being accustomed to recording my songs, doing retakes, sometimes far more often than once. Here I was with lyrics suggesting I was having the privilege of a retake on life. I must say I've had many regrets about the wrongs, failures, and foolish mistakes I've made in my life. I'm well aware that others have learned important things early in life, gathering wisdom and understanding in early age well beyond mine now in my seventies. I've wondered if there was such a thing as reincarnation after all and that I had a life or two to live before I attained to the understanding others have had almost out of the womb. This song promises much ...
