IF I SANG THE SONGS THE ANGELS SING,
If I grasped the depths of everything,
Though the mysteries of this world were mine –
I’m nothing without love.
I could give to every child in need,
I could save the planet from our greed,
I could stand for justice till I bleed –
And never know His love
Love is patient, love is kind,
Not envious or boastful;
Humble, pure and undefiled,
Rejoicing in the truth.
I could give my money to the poor,
I could preach the gospel door to door,
Even save a thousand souls or more –
And still not know His love
Love is trusting, quick to mend,
Protecting and forgiving;
Persevering to the end,
This love will never fail.
When the finest words have passed away,
And the best we have is yesterday,
There is one thing that is here to stay –
His never-failing love,
His never-failing love.
