1 Love is enduring, bearing all things,
suffering the sorrow loving may bring.
Love is forgiving, welcoming home
sinner and stranger, lost and alone.
2 Love is unselfish, patient and kind,
gentle in spirit, steadfast in mind,
willing to give one’s life for a friend.
Love is eternal, love has no end.
3 Love is incarnate, love is divine,
more than a token, more than a sign.
Love is a presence, casting out fear,
warming our hearts, and drawing us near.
(alternate stanza for Communion)
Love is incarnate, love is divine,
broken in bread and poured out in wine,
Come, all believers, come and draw near!
Love resurrected waits for you here.
