The Power Of Love


The whispers in the morning
Of lovers sleeping tight
Are rolling like thunder now
As I look in your eyes

I hold on to your body
And feel each move you make
Your voice is warm and tender
A love that I could not forsake

(first chorus)
Cause I am your lady
And you are my man
Whenever you reach for me
I'll do all that I can

Lost is how I'm feeling lying in your arms
When the world outside's too
Much to take
That all ends when I'm with you

Even though there may be times
It seems I'm far away
Never wonder where I am
'Cause I am always by your side

(repeat first chorus)

(second chorus)
We're heading for something
Somewhere I've never been
Sometimes I am frightened
But I'm ready to learn
Of the power of love

The sound of your heart beating
Made it clear
Suddenly the feeling that I can't go on
Is light years away
(repeat first chorus)

(repeat second chorus)

(Gunther Mende / Candy DeRouge / Jennifer Rush / Mary Susan Applegate / David Foster)

I love Celine Dion and her music but this song should have been left with the original composer Jennifer Rush. No one in my opinion can sing this song with her power and passion.


Love this song, sends chills! #TeamCeline

A classical, powerful and romantic ballad. It might be the song I will dance at my wedding!

♡ Mon amour, il n'en tient qu'à nous de nous aimer plus fort!♡

anyone here reading these? I am a retired art teacher, who in 1979, wrote the original version of The Power of Love, titled then, You Are My Lady... I was divorced and my ex wife took the song and sold it for 15,000, or so her best friend told me. msot of the words were changed, but the music is completely the same..I am 63 years old and want the credit I deserve..not money, just the truth be told, steve I can supply the proof possitive about all this..please help. I've written Oprah ten times probably since she is one of Celine's best friends...

Well, I just love this song. Don't remember the first time I heard it, but for me, this is one of the best songs ever written. And performed by one of the best singer ever, is for me a miracle. Celine truly makes me feel, by singing this song, The Power Of Love. Thanx so much !!

I'm Thankful to be here !!!


a very pleasant and timeless power ballad - First single from Celine's album The Colour Of My Love, Jennifer Rush, who co-wrote the song, originally performed this song in 1984.


The song is really great Sexy

I am single, but for sure I would use this song for my wedding. It perfectly describes a perfect sense of belonging.

When I hear this song, I remember the first time I saw my wife and how I looked forward to seeing her again.

Without this song, I would not have my wonderful husband and beautiful lillte girl gracing my life. Music can bring two people together. This song is our wedding song. It's our life song. We believe we live by the power of love.

Every time I hear this song, it reminds me of my parents, and how strong there love is for me, as well as for one another. It makes me feel warm inside!

I absolutely love this song. MANY people want money in life, SOME want a good job, and others want to explore or be famous, but EVERYONE wants love in life. Some people do not know how lucky they are to have such a powerful love in their life. Love is the most powerful thing in the world, so if you have it, hang on to it with all your heart, and never let go.

I have always loved this song from the first moment I heard it. It also has a very special place in my heart, because it was the very first song Celine Dion sang the first time I saw her live in consert. Now, every time I hear this song I think back on that day and remember how great it was for me to hear the power of her voice, live.
