Lyrics
Just a little ember starts the fire that warms the night.
And just a little word in season puts your fears to flight.
Just a little prayer to our great God will all His blessings bring.
Walk with me, love, through this life, hand in hand.
Let us despise not the day of small things.

Little drops of water join, to then become the sea.
So each little act of love can bring you close to me.
Let me love you, help you, hold you, and of your beauty sing.
Stone by precious stone, let us build our lives together,
And despise not the day of small things.

Love is built one small step at a time
Into a fortress great and strong.
And when life buffets us without reason or rhyme,
Upon God’s rock we’ll sing His song.

God did not give me great treasures of wealth. He gave me something more.
My friend, my companion, my lover, my joy. Each day better than before.
So as we grow, year by year, ever closer; ‘till the day we meet our King,
We’ll thank our dear Jesus for each moment together,
And despise not the day of small things.

Such a tribute to your wife. :-) I love the vocals!! I'm pressed by how anyone can play the bossa nova beat and chords. Lovely song all around, Tom. :-)

I've been writing and playing bossa style since High School. It's always relaxed the ol' beast in me. Thanks for the listen.

Nice tune, I love the bossa style, when I was a kid it seems like it was on the radio all the time. So was that rhythm section from band in a box? those congas have a great tone.
Aint love grand.

Congas
The congas are apple loop. The rest of the rhythm is BIAB. In any case, the drum sound is Apple software instruments.

Yes, love is grand! Thanks for listening
