This Life


Rich Roach

However wild the winds may blow

However hard the rains may fall

However high the weeds may grow

This life to me is all

Give me the fruit that fills the trees

Give me the vine that hugs the wall

Give me the salt that seasons seas

For life to me is all

O joy with pain by mercy mixed

O sunlight bathed in winter squall

O ancient stars in new skies fixed

Together we are all
