FROM THE ARCHIVE 249 -1961-

“Let There Be Love” is a popular song with music by Lionel Rand and lyrics by Ian Grant, published in 1940 (though apparently the first recording, by Van Alexander and his orchestra, was recorded May 29, 1939).

The song is a well-known standard with cover versions by many artists. (from Wikipedia)

Let there be you
Let there be me
Let there be oysters
Under the sea

Let there be wind
An occasional rain
Chile con carne
Sparkling champagne

Let there be birds
To sing in the trees
Someone to bless me
Whenever I sneeze

Let there be cuckoos
A lark and a dove
But first of all, please
Let there be love

Let there be cuckoos
A lark and a dove
But first of all, please
Let there be love

Hmm, love
Hmm, love

Let there be love
