What if i could move mountains, and gave all i had to the poor?
Would it mean a thing?
Would it mean a thing if i don't have love?
What if i used all the gifts and gave my body to the flames?
Would it mean a thing?
Would it mean a thing if i don't have love?
And when i pass through that veil i know perfection comes.
The chains will come off, the walls will fall down,
the scales will drop and I'll see him face to face.
Love came to earth so we'd see a deeper way to live and grow.
Self-seeking in nothing, to show us what it means to walk in love.
To show us how to always trust, to persevere and always hope.
Give thanks in everything, to show us what it means to walk in love.
Love is patient, love is kind.
It doesn't envy, doesn't bind.
It means everything, it means everything when you have love.

    General Comment1 Corinthians 13 in song..obviousely

    1 Corinthians 13 (NIV)
    1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

    4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

    13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
