Love is there beneath the frost line
Love is there above the tree line
Love is there by your side
Peace unto thee be multiplied

You are a gift to me
A constant epiphany
So I'll give my gifts to you
Communal and in solitude

Love is there . . .

I am a gift to you
A fountain of revenue
So I'll keep your gifts to me
Forgiveness and apologies

Love is there . . .

If we are a gift and God is love
How could we not receive more than enough?

Love is there . . .

Each album represents both a U.S. President and a week of human pregnancy from birth to conception.
Starting with 42 (aka Clinton, aka overdue baby) and continuing in reverse order, all recordings are implicitly named and numbered according to past U.S. Presidents and a week of gestation.
