Love Never Fails

Guess why my former church allowed the following song to be sung at a wedding:

1. Because it beautifully proclaims the very words of the oft-used 1 Corinthians 13.
2. Because it reminds us of "whatever is true, noble, right and pure."
3. It wasn't, because it does not point people to the cross. And then, begrudgingly, it was allowed to be sung, but only because some other wedding had errantly been allowed to sing it.

Love is not proud
Love does not boast
Love after all
Matters the most

Love does not run
Love does not hide
Love does not keep
Locked inside

Love is the river that flows through
Love never fails you

Love will sustain
Love will provide
Love will not cease
At the end of time

Love will protect
Love always hopes
Love still believes
When you don’t

Love is the arms that are holding you
Love never fails you

When my heart won’t make a sound
When I can’t turn back around
When the sky is falling down
Nothing is greater than this
Greater than this

Love is right here
Love is alive
Love is the way
The truth the life

Love is the river than flows through
Love is the arms that are holding you
Love is the place you will fly to
Love never fails you
