Love holds on.
Love is strong,
Never wavers, never bends,
Is truer than any friend.
Love survives.
Love always tries,
Never ceases to amaze,
Lives beyond any grave.
You may ask why love tries,
Gives its all, even dies,
As Jesus died for us?
That's what love does.

Love endures.
Love is sure,
Won't deceive or betray,
It will never go away.
Love prevails.
Love never fails,
Does not seek its own way,
Teaches to trust and obey.
You may wonder if it's true,
He would do all this for you;
Leave heaven to make you His?
That's who love is.
