All That Matters

Cliff Richard: The 40th Anniversary Concert at the Royal Albert Hall, London in 1998. One of the songs sung by Cliff Richard was All That Matters. The lyrics truck a chord in me.

All That Matters

The love in you and the love in me, is all that matters
All the rest is vanity
That time will shatter
The only treasure in the life we live, is the measure of the love we give

All that matters in the end will be
The love in you and the love in me, that's all that matters

Every heart must change it's shape
To fit the space a lifetime makes
Some regrets and some mistakes
We touch happiness but we can't hold her

Feelings come and then disappear
I know the laughter, I've cried those tears
I should know better after all these years
But I'm no wiser, I'm just older

It's all a question of priority
We've got so much that we just don't need
But if it ain't got love then it's luxury
We can learn to live without it

lyrics by Paul Field

Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Jesus' threefold question to Peter, to commission him to ministry.
Perhaps we too would hear the same question each time we betray our Master (which is often) and need to be brought back to what our lives are all about: love for God and love for our neighbour.

Hi Lilian,

Yes, these are important questions. And what is more important are our answers.
