TRUE LOVE NEVER FAILS


No greater word was ever told
No selfless life so grim
No greater love could ere unfold
Than that displayed through Him

He’s love He’s love as is His name
Great love He longs to give
Through love He came bore all our shame
That we through Him may live

Though God! He chose a human birth
To bring His loving Son
To live to die as flesh on earth
That victory may be won

With love divine splendid supreme
Heartfelt selfless and true
Only those found living its dream
Have endless life in view

Eternal life eternal love
With Christ! God First & Last
Eternity; to spend above
When time on earth has past

Such selfless love can never fail
Onward up and higher
Always will it’s strength prevail
When even tried by fire

Who’ve sampled in their darkest hour
Who’s tasted of its flow
Oft testify within love’s power
It’s never weak to show

For He who’s Lord who’s God and King
Who’s power cannot fade
Says love surpasses everything
That Jesus’ hand has made

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
