Only Love Can Do That--Lyrics

By Richard Mekdeci Lyrics based on a text of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This selection is included in Unity Worldwide Ministries' Online Choral Library.

CHORUS Darkness cannot drive away darkness, only light can do that. Hatred cannot drive away hatred, only love can do that.

VERSE 1 All you soldiers of peace, hatred has an enemy. If you want the fighting to cease remember these words from the fallen King:


VERSE 2 We all must try to be an instrument of peace. Remember an eye for an eye leaves ev'ryone blind and our children never see.


BRIDGE Only love can heal, only love can take the fear away. Only love is real, only love will come to save the day.
