Greets The Day With Hope

Greets The Day With Hope

Now I hope this does not sound overly corny, but often Robert will turn to me and smile, before singing the title and most famous line from this song…”Have I told you lately that I love you?” I know this song so well, and it was a very obvious choice when I saw Jim’s theme for today included the word “greet”.

Rod Stewart – that old heartbreaker – made this song really famous, but it was actually penned and released by Van Morrison a few years earlier. I have always thought it was terribly romantic, but apparently it was originally written as a prayer. Prayer or love song – the sentiments are entirely beautiful.

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one else above you
Fill my heart with gladness
take away all my sadness
ease my troubles that's what you do

For the morning sun in all it's glory
greets the day with hope and comfort too
You fill my life with laughter
and somehow you make it better
ease my troubles that's what you do
There's a love that's divine
and it's yours and it's mine like the sun
And at the end of the day
we should give thanks and pray
to the one, to the one

Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one else above you
Fill my heart with gladness
take away all my sadness
ease my troubles that's what you do

There's a love that's divine
and it's yours and it's mine like the sun
And at the end of the day
we should give thanks and pray
to the one, to the one

And have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you there's no one else above you
You fill my heart with gladness
take away my sadness
ease my troubles that's what you do
Take away all my sadness
fill my life with gladness
ease my troubles that's what you do
Take away all my sadness
fill my life with gladness
ease my troubles that's what you do

  1. I went a little overboard trying to find greet in a song and couldn’t. I have always loved this song but greet being in it to meet the prompt is icing on the cake 🙂
