Inspiration Track


These are the lyrics as recorded and arranged for the Wholehearted Chorus.

May I suggest, may I suggest to you,
May I suggest this is the best part of your life
May I suggest, this time is blessed for you
This time is blessed and shining almost blinding bright
Just turn your head, and you’ll begin to see
The thousand reasons that were just beyond your sight
The reasons why, why I suggest to you
Why I suggest this is the best part of your life

SOLO 1: There is a world, that’s been addressed to you
Addressed to you, intended only for your eyes
SOLO 2: A secret world, a treasure chest to you
Of private scenes and brilliant dreams that mesmerise
A lover’s trusting smile, a tiny baby’s hands
The million stars that fill the turning sky at night
Oh I suggest, oh I suggest to you
Oh I suggest this is the best part of your life

SMALL GROUP: There is a hope, That’s been expressed in you
The hope of seven generations, maybe more
This is the faith, That they invest in you
It’s that you’ll do one better than was done before
Inside you know, Inside you understand
Inside you know what’s yours to finally set right
Oh I suggest, Oh I suggest to you
Oh I suggest this is the best part of your life

SOLO 3: This is a song, Comes from the west to you
Comes from the west, comes from the slowly setting sun
SOLO 4: With a request, With a request of you
To see how very short the endless days will run
And when they’re gone, And when the dark descends
Oh we’d give anything for one more hour of light

May I suggest… this is the best part… of your life

    This is so wonderful! Thank you for sharing! There seems to be a spot in the middle of the piece where the individual parts aren’t accentuated, but I’m guessing since this is quite a few years gone by that it won’t be available. But thank so much for your generosity in sharing as much as you have. It’s greatly appreciated!!!

  • Thank you so much for these individual parts! I hope you don’t mind, but I’d love to share these with my choir students. I’m trying to introduce various styles of music to them. They will LOVE this! If you ever get sheet music for your music, that would be super helpful too! Again, thank you!

      Thank you, Gia! Please do share with your students. These songs are for sharing, but please give credit to the artist. We do not offer sheet music at this time. Thank you for your kind words.

  • Carol Brydolf

    Thank you so much for this!!!!

  • Ashley Perez

    I agree do you happen to have the sheet music for what you sang?

    • Lisa G.

      Hi Ashley, I’m sorry I don’t have sheet music for my songs or arrangements at this time.

  • Is there any sheet music available for SSA? Thanks!
