  • All the colors of the rainbow
    All the voices of the wind
    Every dream that reaches out
    That reaches out to find where love begins

    Every word of every story
    Every star in every sky
    Every corner of creation lives to testify

    For as long as I shall live, I will testify to love
    I'll be a witness in the silences when words are not enough
    With every breath I take, I will give thanks to God above
    For as long as I shall live, I will testify to love

    From the mountains to the valleys
    From the rivers to the sea
    Every hand that reaches out
    Every hand that reaches out to offer peace

    Every simple act of mercy
    Every step to kingdom come
    All the hope in every heart will speak what love has done

    For as long as I shall live, I will testify to love
    I'll be a witness in the silences when words are not enough
    With every breath I take, I will give thanks to God above
    For as long as I shall live, I will testify to love

    Colors of the rainbow, voices of the wind
    Dream that reaches out where love begins
    Word of every story, star in every sky
    Corner of creation testify
    Mountain to the valley, river to the sea
    Hand that reaches out to offer peace
    A simple act of mercy, kingdom come
    Every heart will speak what love has done
    Colors of the rainbow, voices of the wind (testify, testify)
    Dream that reaches out where love begins
    Word of every story, star in every sky (testify, testify)
    Corner of creation testify

    For as long as I shall live, I will testify to love
    I'll be a witness in the silences when words are not enough
    With every breath I take, I will give thanks to God above
    For as long as I shall live, I will testify to love

    For as long as I shall live, I will testify to love
    I'll be a witness in the silences when words are not enough
    With every breath I take, I will give thanks to God above
    For as long as I shall live, I will testify to love

    For as long as I shall live, I will testify to love
    I'll be a witness in the silences when words are not enough
    With every breath I take, I will give thanks to God above
    For as long as I shall live, I will testify to love Writer/s: Hendrik Henk Pool Jr., Paul Field, Ralph Van Manen, Robert T. Riekerk
