Love is 1 Corinthians reading and music

A reading from St Paul’s first letter to the

Corinthians, Capter 13.

Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

It is not rude, it is not self-seeking; it is not

easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

Though I speak in tongues of angels,

And of men but have not love.

I will be a clanging cymbal,

I will be a sounding gong.

If I have not love,

If I have not love

If I have not love

I am nothing.

I may fathom every mystery

Always give a reason ‘why’

I may have the gift of ‘knowledge’

I may even prophesy…

But if I have not love….

Though my faith can move a mountain,

Though I give my wealth away,

Lift my hands up in surrender

Give my body to the flames.

If I…

Love is patient, love is kind.

Does not envy does not boast

It’s not proud , it is not rude

Doesn’t love itself the most

Love is not so quick to anger

Keeps no record of a wrong

It does not delight in evil

But in truth, bursts into song…

That if we have not love…..

Love protects and trusts and hopes and

Perseveres and stays the same

Three things here will stay forever

There are three things that remain ~

Faith and Hope and Love forever

All are given from above

But the one beyond all others

And the greatest one of all

is Love.
