Pay it with Love

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.
And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
–1 Corinthians 13:1-3, 13 (NKJV)

1. If you have a child,
You know the power of love.
There’s no request too big or small
On earth or heaven above.
Refrain:

2. If God sends you a soulmate,
No mountain is too high.
You give yourself and all you have
To see that precious smile.
Refrain:

3. O Jesus paid the price
To wash away our sins.
So let us open up our hearts
And let his Spirit in.
Refrain:

It’s not enough
Unless you pay it with love.

Refrain:
‘Cause if there’s any other reason that you make the sacrifice,
And if the cost is any less than the greatest things in life,
And if you choose a different way to pay the highest price,
It’s not enough.
You gotta pay it with love.
