Love Is Patient

Love is patient, love is kind
It does not envy or speak in pride
It does not seek its own reward
Oh, that’s how You love me, Lord

It always hopes and perseveres
It covers over a wealth of sins
It shuns all evil, delights in truth
Oh, I want to be like You

I’m in love with a King
I’m in love with a Friend
And whatever I do
This love never ends
He’s for me, He pleads for me
Pours out His life for me
What more do I need
Amazing love

There are tonnegues now, but they will cease
There is knowledge – it’s incomplete
For what we know now, we know in part
But what endures is a loving heart
