Acapella – Let there be Love

So I’ve heard this song in the past and the lyrics with the harmonization just inspires one to do good while learning from the past.  I’ve been singing the base part of this song to myself the last three weeks or so at work.  Not sure why, but this song keeps me in an upbeat mood but I really enjoy the acappella (all voice) arrangement.  If you want something inspiring, uplifting and enjoyable, then close your eyes and listen to this song while letting the words sink in.  It definitely puts life in perspective.  This song inspires me to be better, knowing who to turn too for help!   Enjoy.         The lyrics are below.

Theses are the lyrics of the song by Acapella,

Lyrics to Let There Be Love:

Once there was love long ago
Sweet innocence long ago
Please tell me where did it go
Out of our hearts out of our world
Then Someone came in the night
Came to lead men to the light
Turn us around make us right
Bring love to our hearts love to the world
Chorus:
Let there be peace (around the world)
Let there be joy (around the world)
Let there be hope (around the world)
Let there be love (around the world)
Let there be love
My friend what the world needs now
Truly is love, God’s love
We need to change somehow
Changing our hearts changing our world
I know our God He can do
His love is strong and His word is true
We need to take the Good News
Into our hearts into our world
Repeat Chorus

Let freedom ring (all around the world)
