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.
2. If God sends you a soulmate,
No mountain is too high.
You give yourself and all you have
To see that precious smile.
3. O Jesus paid the price
To wash away our sins.
So let us open up our hearts
And let his Spirit in.
It’s not enough
Unless you pay it with love.
‘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.
