Lela’s Song


This is an original vocal solo written by my friend, Donna Kuust.  To be more accurate, it was actually composed by a fictional character (Lela) in a novel she’s writing. In Donna’s own words, “Lela got the song so stuck in my brain that I simply HAD to get it on paper and record it.  I eventually came to the conclusion that it was a gift from Heavenly Father and thus I felt even more urged to get it out into the world if I could.” 4 pages, approximately 2:55. Piano accompaniment is early intermediate level.  Special thanks to Hannah Terrell for recording the vocals.

My world is a lonely place,
While surrounded by those who would care.
I always shove them away, say I cannot stay,
For of love’s pain I’m well aware.

Love has the power to bind us,
Love can wound and love can heal.
Love can be given or accepted,
Love I learned that I dare not feel.

Free me from this awful torment.
Help me risk the pain that comes.
Show me love can be worth seeking,
So we can be one.

Take my hand when I’m lonely,
I’ll help you when you’re down.
When we learn how to give and take,
Life holds fewer frowns.

Love is the joy that we live for,
Love is how we all came to be.
Love is the end and beginning,
Love is the only way to be free.
Love is the only way to be free.
