Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It does not dishonor others,
It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs.

but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
