Charity

 The Greatest Of These

 

May we seek after fervent charity among ourselves

The bond most perfect, that never fails

Charity suffers long and is kind

Where knowledge may boast and vanish from mind.

 

It's in charity that profiteth one most

It's in love from Jesus that willingly gave up the ghost

That gave His life on Calvary Hill

Give us this love and placed on His seal.

 

Without this love, brotherly kindness will diminish

It takes charity for the church to replenish

Though I would have faith to remove mountains

Without charity I am nothing, but as a waterless fountain.

 

May we abound in love, faith and peace

May we endure with patience that will never cease

As trees whose fruit will never wither

As branches clinging to the Vine by the flowing river.

 

May we be as salt of the earth that will never loose its savor

That will never be cast out to be trodden of man for our labor

May we pray earnestly never ceasing

May we live our life for God that will be most pleasing.

 

May we greet each other with the blessedness of charity

Desiring to be fed with Heaven's clarity

May we feast with fear as we journey onward

Holding to our Savior's promises as we climb upward.

 

CHARITY IS LOVE
