‘Love … always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres’ (1 Corinthians 13:7a)

Love does not assume evil motive,
but looks for some good intent;
not gullible, foolishly trusting,
but hopes that no ill is meant.

Protects and trusts,
Love hopes and protects, on and on.
Love trusts, and hopes,
love hopes and protects when it can

Love shows it expects kindly actions,
encourages such from all,
protects the one who is slipping,
supports, helps him not to fall.

And show that you really believe that
it’s possible they could reach
a better standard of loving,
and gain from the words you teach.

With God mighty changes can happen,
and battles with sin are won.
He’s willing to hear sinners calling,
and gladly will help each one.
Tune: Redeemed
