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 flame?
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

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 is patient, love is kind
It doesn't envy, doesn't bind
It means everything
It means everything when you have love

    General CommentHey this song rocks man. Its sad how many people dont know love. So many people confuse lust with love and think they love when it is just lust. Without God there is no love. God is love. You can put his name in place of love in 1 corinthians 13 and his name fits.
