Place me like a seal over your heart,
like a seal on your arm.
For love is as strong as death,
its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
like a mighty flame.
Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot wash it away.
Song of Solomon 8 : 6-7
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.
Love always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends.
Love never fails.
Corinthians 13 : 4 - 8
God created many special people.
To behold one,
just look in the mirror.
Could we with ink the ocean fill.
And were the skies of parchment made;
Were every stalk on earth a quill.
And every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Tho’ stretched from sky to sky.
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forever more endure–
The saints’ and angels’ song.
