True love it lasts forever
And it endures the test of time;
It is committed and it is faithful
It’s like precious gold refined.
It is never rude or proud
And it always speaks the truth;
It is humble and so gentle
With an authority that bears fruit.
It is music mixed with art
And a tapestry of flowers;
It is clean and also crisp
Filled with the majesty of God’s power.
True love is sacrificial
And stands against society,
And its self-fulfilling desires
So God’s heart it learns to see.
It is holy and so pure
With both love and peace combined;
It’s a joyful fountain spring
Where many treasures we can find.
Our Jesus set the standard
But we nailed Him to the cross,
Since our rebellious fallen nature
Required Christ to pay the cost.
An expression of timeless grace
With an event that never fails;
A belief that bears all things
And a hope that will prevail..
(C) P.B. 2017
“Love suffers long and is kind, love does not envy, love does not parade itself, is not puffed up, does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil, does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth, bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails”. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
“And now abide faith, hope, love, these three, but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13
