Help: wedding song to make you cry! (39) RE: Help: wedding song to make you cry! 10 Jan 00


The late, great Kate Wolf recorded on her own label, Kaleidoscope Records, PO Box O, El Cerrito, CA 94530

"Two way Waltz" is on Kal. rec. C-11, Safe at Anchor, released in 1981. "Give Yourself to Love" is on her album of that name, Kal. rec. F-3000. There have been posthumous releases of her material, so both these songs may be on one "greatest hits" disc now. "Give Yourself to Love" is also in _Rise Up Singing_. I'll give you a little more of a taste of it...

Kind friends all gather round, there's something I would say

That what brings us together has blessed us all today

Love has made a circle that holds us all inside

Where strangers are as family, & lonliness can't hide

you must (chorus) Give yourself to love, if love is what you're after

Open up your hearts to the tears and laughter

And give yourself to love, give yourself to love

I've walked these mountains in the rain, I've learned to love the wind

I've been up before the sunrise to watch the day begin

I always knew I'd find you, tho' I never did know how

But like sunshine on a cloudy day, you stand before me now

so (chorus)

Love is born in fire, it's planted like a seed

Love can't give you everything, but it gives you what you need

Love comes when you're ready, love comes when you're afraid

It will be your greatest teacher, the best friend you have made, so

(chorus, usually 2x)

Well, that was the whole thing, not just a sample. The words are so beautiful, I just got carried away. The tune is beautiful, too. This one gets my vote!
