Sufjan Stevens – The Greatest Gift Lyrics

[Verse 1] Praise the mountain and the rain
All the gifts that still remain
But the greatest gift of all
And the law above all laws

[Chorus 1] Is to love your friends and lovers
To lay down your life for your brothers
As you abide in peace
So will your delight increase

[Verse 2] As the mystery of the cross
Is the love joy lost, the toss
And the fountain in the rain
Where my sorrow still remains

[Chorus 2] So I run to my friends and lovers
I lay down my life for my brothers
As I abide in peace
So will my delight increase
