Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16


Verse 1:  If I speak with tongues of men and angels, too; If I have the gifts of prophecy and faith; If I give all I possess and give my body as a sacrifice; If I have no love I’m nothing after all.
Verse 2:  Love is patient, love is kind and envies not; Never boastful, never rude or filled with pride; Love is never seeking self and is not easily provoked to wrath; Love hates evil but rejoices with the truth.
Verse 3:  Love protects, and trusts and always perseveres; Never failing, love will never pass away. In the path of love the Savior walked and humbly gave Himself to die; And the path of love leads straight to Calvary.
Verse 4:  Help us, Lord, to love You with our heart and soul; Teach us, Lord, to love our neighbors as ourselves. Make us understand that loving one another is the only way; May our hearts be moved to imitate Your love.
