Love Suffers Long

Based in part on 1 Corinthians 13:4-5:

House of Prayer - Love In His Name

Love Suffers Long
by Michael Doyle

The greatest thing is the truest love
Not superficial love but the real love
That love which God gives to us all
The kind of love needed to recall

The kind of love delivered freely
In a home church shared by we
The people who live under the cross
Given to victory over sin's loss

We who were once given to sin
Now converted to God's again
Saved from that ill fated story
Given over to God's greater glory

As an apostle to Christ as disciple
Teaching the Word from the Bible
No longer given to ways of contesting
Passed with faith through the testing

Knowing that God's love will never fail
His true victory ever to truly prevail
The love had is taken to Heaven
And remembered when we break leaven

Remembering His sacrifice for us all
With blood of Christ we duly recall
All the law fulfilled in Jesus' life given
Through His death we are forgiven
