​Goes A Long Way

This song is by Mark Heard and appears on the compilation album The Lost Artifacts Of An American Poet - The Original Recordings Of Mark Heard Part II (2008).

Lots of people fear allegiance to something they can't see
Often you can't see yourself, though you look so carefully
And yet you give your life to you, as if you knew it all
You never lived a life before, trust God so you won't fall

A little bit of God's love goes a long way
You can throw the burdens off your back and walk away
Sharin' eternity seems to brighten up your day
A little bit of God's love goes a long way, goes a long way, yeah

People who have little says that wisdom is the thing
They say that all our problems could be solved by brainy brains
History tells me that's not true, what can cure our woe?
Why leave out our Maker, don't you reckon He might know?

A little bit of God's love goes a long way
You can throw your burdens off your back and walk away
Sharin' eternity tends to brighten up your day
A little bit of God's love goes a long way, goes a long way

If you're tryin' to find God, which one of you is lost?
Let's suppose you've got a gift, who would pay the cost?
Jesus proved that He meant business, He stayed on that cross
Love's the privilege to call God your Father and your Boss

A little bit of God's love goes a long way
You can throw your burdens off your back and walk away
Sharin' eternity tends to brighten up your day
A little bit of God's love goes a long way, goes a long way, yeah yeah
