"GOTTA BE LOVE"
I was (G) talkin' to the Lord about some things I'd said
'cause I (Bm7) couldn't really tell had they been good or bad
Our in(Am7)tentions may so often be quite good and pure
then there's (C) other times that I just wouldn't be so sure
So, the Lord said, 'Honey, don't fret nor dismay,
there's a simple little rule by which you've got to play
And if you'll stick to it you won't go astray,
What(C)ever you do, what(D)ever you say,
It's gotta be (G) love.
It's gotta be (Em) humble
it's gotta be (C) true, kind,
give peace to the troubled and sight (Am7) to the blind
it's gotta set the (Bm) captives free
and (C) most of all, (D) it's gotta be (G) Me
So I went about my life & what life's all about
and I stuck to the rule, followed that golden route
Till a week or so later, must have sheer forgot
and a nasty little thing to say slipped out
The reaction wasn't quite what I had hoped it was
And well, isn't that the way that it so often goes
So I'm goin' back to Jesus, what He has to say
Said "Remember what I told you just the other day?"
So if you're some fellow who's quick with his lip
Let me share this with you: don't let nothin' slip
that you wouldn't want someone to have said to you
and remember that Jesus gave this golden rule:
