Love is very patient and kind,
Never jealous or envious,
Never boastful or proud,
Never haughty or selfish or rude.
Love does not demand its own way.
It is not irritable or touchy.
It does not hold grudges and
Will hardly even notice
When others do it wrong.
It is never glad about injustice,
But rejoices whenever truth wins out.
If you love someone you will be loyal to him
No matter what the cost.
You will always believe in him,
Always expect the best of him,
And always stand your ground,
In defending him.
All the special gifts and powers from God
Will someday come to an end,
But love goes on forever.
I Corinthians 13:4-8
