Composer: Peter Cutts, 1969
Author: Timothy Dudley-Smith, 1985
Scripture: I Corinthians 13
Theme: Sacraments and Ordinances
1. Not for tongues of heaven's angels, Not for wisdom to discern, Not for faith that masters mountains; For this better gift we yearn: May love be ours, O Lord. 2. Love is humble, love is gentle, Love is tender, true, and kind; Love is gracious, ever-patient, Generous of heart and mind: May love be ours, O Lord. 3. Never jealous, never selfish, Love will not rejoice in wrong; Never boastful nor resentful, Love believes and suffers long: May love be ours, O Lord. 4. In the day this world is fading Faith and hope will play their part; But when Christ is seen in glory Love shall reign in every heart: May love be ours, O Lord.
