A Hymn: The Greatest is Love

Author:

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

a-hymn-the-greatest-is-love

Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

O Paradise, O Paradise (Paradise)

The Composed Song

1. The greatest even is the love

In the world we live in

For charity envies not

And will not vaunt itself

Refrain/Chorus

Faith and hope and the love

These three are even present

But the one that’s greatest

It is even the love


2. The greatest even is the love

In the world we live in

Love won’t act unseemly

And it does not puffed up

Refrain/Chorus


3. The greatest even is the love

In the world we live in

‘Cause love seeketh not her own

Not easily provoked

Refrain/Chorus


4. The greatest even is the love

In the world we live in

‘Cause love thinketh of no evil

And it doeth no evil

Refrain/Chorus


5. The greatest even is the love

In the world we live in

It rejoiceth in the truth

Rejoiceth not in ‘quity

Refrain/Chorus


6. The greatest even is the love

In the world we live in

Because the love do have patience

And it does shows kindness

Refrain/Chorus


7. The greatest even is the love

In the world we live in

It even beareth all things

And believeth everything

Refrain/Chorus


8. The greatest even is the love

In the world we live in

It hopeth ‘ven for all things

And casts away all fears

Refrain/Chorus


9. The greatest even is the love

In the world we live in

It even endureth all things

Covers multitude of sin

Refrain/Chorus


10. When you show love even unto

The brethren you ‘re seeing

Then you are disciples of Christ

Genuinely and in truth

Refrain/Chorus
