Text from 1 Corinthians 13 and Numbers 6. SATB, solo (medium voice), keyboard, and optional oboe. Lovely and flowing with a beautiful benediction.
Though I speak with the tongues of men and angels, though my faith is a faith that can move a mountain; though I give all I possess, all is for nothing if I have not love. Though I give myself to be broken, and prophesy with understanding, and have all knowledge and power, all is for nothing if I have not love. Love is patient, love is kind, love rejoices ever in the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never dies. The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make his face to shine upon you, the Lord lift up his eyes to you and and be gracious unto you. And give you peace, Amen.
