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
