Love Never Fails


In His Eyes

Performed by Mindy Jostyn
Music from an American folk tune
Words from I Corinthians, adapted by Mindy Jostyn and Jacob Brackman

Listen to the Music!

Love Never Fails is a rustic ode to the ever-present, unassuming majesty of love in its purest form. Its direct lyrics remind us that mere charisma or knowledge are empty qualities when unaccompanied by the strength of love, whose power can be heard everywhere even though it speaks softly. The music is an original take on the beloved American folk tune, “The Water Is Wide”, with the words adapted from the text of First Corinthians 13 in a unique and special way. The song is off Mindy’s beloved album In His Eyes, a wonderful collection of 16 non-denominational folk hymns flavored with musical influences from around the world and featuring Mindy’s expressive vocals and her command of violin, accordion, keyboard, guitar and harmonica. This track can also be found on Songs of Love, a hand-picked collection of songs themed around all the varieties of love — physical love, spiritual love, Valentine love, familial love, and love for The Master.
