Love is the most excellent way,
Without it we just echo and fade;
Empty and hollow as a drum;
Insubstantial as a shadow in the sun.
Without it there is nothing to be gained,
For love is the most excellent way.
A mirror where we see Jesus' face;
Keeping no record of the past,
Always patient and enduring to the last.
And love will always hope and never fail;
I could talk in tongues of angels,
Move a mountain down to the sea.
If I did it without love it would mean nothing at all to me...
Unchanging in a world of decay;
When words and knowledge all are gone,
Only faith and hope and love will carry on.
So may love show in all we do and say,
(References: 1 Cor 13)
