Someone To Love


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, 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. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

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

  1. Great song.

    An update on censorship: the Glenn Beck Review has moved although the forwarding link is not yet functional.

    THE issue now is that WordPress won’t let me copy and past the 41 posts that we not captured. That’s my punishment for inviting other bloggers to read a post of mine. Zero tolerance! HOLES!

    The move to a new blog will be a big hiccup if I can get access to my post. In fact, things may improve as I’ve been accepted by Syracuse Examiner.com to post there. I JUST NEED MY 6 WEEKS OF WORK TO NOT HAVE TO START OVER!

    The new link doesn’t yet get to the blog, but it’s getting close. Plus I actually have a website now. If I hit the lottery and can quit my job, I’d have the opportunity to really take on the yellow propagandist, Glenn Beck. Anyway….
