Love Never Fails

(I Corinthians 13:1-8a,13)

By Gilberto Barreto

CCLI Number: 2447797

This song is intended to be sung as an intense solo with a band accompanying. The midi attempts to convey the tone of the song but can be greatly improved by a live performance. The verses can be improvised by the soloist in many ways as seems fitting. Backup vocals should join with the soloist on the 3 choruses. One of the backup vocals can sing the echo on the choruses. We used this song in many prison concerts. Be sure and hear Alton Alexander singing this song using the links below. - Elton

(Short introduction)

If I speak in the tongues
of men and of angels,
but have not love,
I am only
a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
If I have the gift of prophecy
and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge,
and if I have a faith that can move mountains,
but have not love, I am nothing.
If I give all I possess to the poor
and surrender my body to the flames

(Chorus 1)
But have not love, but have not love, I gain nothing.
But have not love, but have not love, I gain nothing.
But have not love, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud. It is not rude,
it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth,
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.

(Chorus 2)
Love never fails, love never fails, love never fails.
Love never fails, love never fails, love never fails.
Love never fails, love never fails, love never fails.

And now these three remain:
faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.
And now these three remain:
faith, hope and love.
But the greatest of these is love.

(Chorus 3)
Love never fails, love never fails, love never fails.
Love never fails, love never fails, love never fails.
Love never fails, love never fails, love never fails.
