Oh, How Lovely It Is to Be Alive


I prefer silence
A quiet open space
With birds chirping
And the cold breeze in my face

Looking out into the beauty of God's creation
My face up in the sky with adoration
Oh, how lovely it is to be alive
And feel the warmth coming from the light of the sun

Opening my arms wide
Slowly, I'm getting ready to fly
How do birds fly?
I wonder how it feels to be up high

To be free and alive
And do things that you love
Be out there singing aloud
The melody of life that we have
