I will pray for peace (Psalm 122:8; CEV).
I pray for peace in every mind,
That pride and hate will always fail,
That all will turn to you at last, Lord God,
And faith prevail.
I pray for joy in every heart,
That rage and greed will always fail,
That you will reign in every life, Lord God,
And hope prevail.
I pray for truth in every soul,
That lies and force will always fail,
That all will grow in unity, Lord God,
And love prevail.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, 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. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails (1 Corinthians 13:4-8; NIV).
Three things will last forever – faith, hope, and love –
and the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13; NLT).
