Lyrics

Love
Words from I Corinthians 13:4-12, adapted by Paul Kirby
Music by Paul Kirby

Love…
Love is always patient and king.
Love…
Love is never boastful.
Bearing all things,
Love is always hopeful.
Envying none,
Love grows.

Love…
Love is not self-righteous or rude.
Love…
Love is not resentful.
Rejoicing in truth,
Love is never selfish.
Believing all things,
Only love knows

Prophecies fail,
And tongues cease.
Knowledge shall pass away.
For we know now in part,
And we see only dimly.

When…
Perfect understanding shall come,
Knowing as we are known above,
Faith, hope, and love…
These abide forever,
But the greatest of these
Is love.
