Love Is

Love is patient
Love is kind
It won’t forget
Or leave behind
It doesn’t mock
It doesn’t boast
It’s always such
A gracious host
Love is sacred
Love is truth
It gives to me
I give to you
Generous
Without contempt
Without regret
When it’s all spent
Love protects
And never fails
Love is hope
And hope can heal
It doesn’t boast
Or waste the day
It is not proud
It will not shame

Love is patient
Love is kind
Perfect love
Is never blind
Perfect love
Will cast out fear
It always hopes
It’s ever near

Love is the highest calling. Love is the hardest calling.
