Love Triumphs

From 1 Corinthians 13:13:  “And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.”

Living hollow life without love

Nothing but emptiness, thereof


Disconnected faith fills our veins

Minus love, tall mountains remain


Mankind’s meaningless possessions

Forgotten in life’s recessions


Worldly knowledge, means so little

Love gently binds, never brittle


Love arrives with Holy kindness

Patience without any blindness


Never arrogant or hateful

Without envy, always grateful


Jesus teaches, love each other

Sincere love, sisters and brothers


Caring God so loved this dark world

Christ’s own unselfish love unfurled


From a blood-stained Cross comes His Grace

Love speaks out, sin falls on its face


Our Lord offers His Holy gift

Faith, hope, love . . . no longer adrift


God’s Word delivers life’s new lease

Love triumphs, building lasting peace

From the words of Christian theologian, Reinhold Niebuhr:  “The cross symbolizes a cosmic as well as a historic truth.  Love conquers the world, but its victory is not an easy one.”
