Refrain: Where there is love, there is God.
The love of God has gathered us together: Alleluia
1. Love is patient, love is kind,
Never jealous, never proud,
Never seeking for oneีs self,
Love never leads to anger.
2. Love is gracious and forgiving
Taking no delight in wrong
Love rejoices in the truth
Love will endure
3. Many things will pass away,
There are but three things that last;
Faith, Hope and Love;
The greatest of these is Love.
