A Desire to Love   Leave a comment

Though I may speak with moving words,

Which can inspire the human heart,

But have not love to seal their worth,

They are but sham and empty art.

.

Though I may give my worldly goods

Without a thought of self or gain,

Unless they bear the fruits of love,

They are as clouds without their rain.

.

Though I may search the deepest books,

Companion with the wisest men,

God’s loving voice still calls to me,

It bids me turn and look again.

.

Now I would learn to know this Love

Through meek and patient ministry,

Until my life has grown anew

And Love is All-in-all to me.

(Hymn 588 from the Christian Science Hymnal – words by Fenella Bennetts inspired by I Corintians 13)
