It is not envious, not boastful,
Not arrogant, not rude,
It doesn’t have to get its own way,
It doesn’t irritate nor keep a score (of sin),
It doesn’t celebrate in wrongdoing,
But shares a happy shout in the truth! (“Yehaw!”)
It always protects, always trusts,
Always hopes, always endures!
Love will never pass away.
But if there are prophesies, they’ll go obsolete;
If there’s speaking in tongues, it will cease;
If there is knowledge, it will fade away.
