Love by the Handful​/​The Nightengal

from Shaker Songs by Winterbirds



"Love by the Handful"

Here's love by the handful,
Here's love by the ball;
Here's love for the elders,
Here's love for you all.

This love it flows freely,
From this little store,
To all Mother's children,
Mine from my core.

"The Nightengal"
