1 Corinthians 13

John Michael Talbot

Love is patient, love is kind.  

Love is humble; does not put on airs.

Love is never rude.

Not prone to anger,

Does not seek itself.

Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not brood over injuries.

Does not rejoice in what is wrong,

Love rejoices always with the truth.

Love never fails.  There is no limit to love,

To its power to prevail,

To its trust, to its hope, its power to endure.

There are in the end three things that last:

There is faith, there is hope, and charity,

And the greatest of these is love,

So after love, seek eagerly.
