Text by e.e. cummings and Kathy Burdette, Philippians 1

I carry you in my heart. I carry you in my heart. For your light and love made my soul to sing Like the quiet winter warms to spring. And I carry your heart with mine. I carry your heart with mine. I thank my God for every thought of you. I carry you in my heart. I carry you in my heart. You are part of God’s perfect mystery. For the way you live helps me to see. And I carry your heart with mine. I carry your heart with mine. I thank my God for every thought of you. And this is the root of the root, and this is the bud of the bud, and the sky of the sky of a tree called life which grows and grows. Because of you my heart can love still more. I carry you in my heart, I thank my God for you. And because of you my heart can love still more.
