Pass It On

   D             Dm7      G          A
It only takes a spark to get a fire going
    D              Dm7       G              A
And soon all those around can warm up in its glowing
       G              D
That's how it is with God's love,
Em7               Fm    Bm
Once you've experienced it
     Em                  D
Your spread the love to everyone
    G       A       D
You want to pass it on

What a wonderous time is spring
When all the trees are budding
The birds begin to sing, the flowers start their blooming
That's how it is with God's love
Once you've experienced it.
You want to sing, it's fresh like spring
You want to pass it on.

I wish for you my friend
This happiness that I've found
You can depend on God
It matters not where you're bound
I'll shout it from the mountain top - Praise God!
I want the world to know
The lord of love has come to me
I want to pass it on

You can depend on Him; it matters not where you're bound
