4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not [b]puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, [c]thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Hymn: TLH 363, st. 1-3 :
To our Redeemer’s Glorious Name
1. To our Redeemer’s glorious name
Awake the sacred song.
Oh, may His love, immortal flame,
Tune every heart and tongue.
2. His love, what human thought can reach,
What mortal tongue portray?
Imagination’s utmost stretch
In wonder dies away.
3. He left His radiant throne on high,
Left realms of heavenly bliss,
And came to earth to bleed and die,–
Was ever love like this?
