In Search of Love


Where Is Love

 

1 John 4:19-21
New International Version (NIV)

19 We love because he first loved us. 20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. 21 And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.


Where Is Love

I met a man,
A most curious man,
Who held all the answers
In the palm of his hand,

So I posed him some questions
And asked for his aid,
Here’s what I asked him
And what he conveyed,

Draw me a picture,
Write me a book,
What is love?
And where should I look?

Is it high on a mountain?
Or deep in the sea?
Are there any directions
That you might give to me?

Could I buy it with money?
Or swap it for jewels?
I’m willing to work,
If I have the right tools?

Give me a hint,
Give me a clue,
Show me the right road
To what I pursue,

I’ve heard that love
Is the greatest of treasures,
And I’ve grown quite tired
Of these earthly pleasures,

Please won’t you help me?
Won’t you take hold of my hand?
Lead me and guide me
To this prize most grand,

His answer was clear
As clear could be,
You cannot earn love,
You see… Love is free,

You’re blessed if you find it,
More so, if it’s a gift,
Because it comes down from heaven
Or it does not exist.

So look high above
And send up a prayer,
The one who love finds
Must be willing to share.
