The Teacher

by Brian Francis

He gave his life
He gave it up for us
He gave his life up for us
A challenge to us
to give our life up too

He taught us love
he showed us how to love
He proved that his true love
His love for all of us, each of us
could be our love too

He gave the word life
taught us how we could live
taught us how we should live
with that brotherly love
a love that is always true

He reached out
he reached out to us
reached out to all of us
reached out inviting us
that we might reach out too

The repetitions in this give it almost a musical feel, pulls it together very effectively. Open to interpreting who the teacher is which I like a lot.
