No Sacrifice

For love there is no sacrifice
To offer but the whole of self
The heart must heed its own advice
And know the joy of this love’s wealth

To offer but the whole of self
To one who makes that sweet demand
And know the joy of this love’s wealth
That’s firmly held within their hand

To one who makes that sweet demand
Love grasps the soul beyond compare
That’s firmly held within their hand
For in love all is seen as fair

Love grasps the soul beyond compare
Open the mind to purest bliss
For in love all is seen as fair
And lovers meet inside a kiss

Open the mind to purest bliss
As spirits join when lips unite
And lovers meet inside a kiss
To see the future in delight

As spirits join when lips unite
The heart must heed its own advice
To see the future in delight
For love there is no sacrifice
