Love Is The More Excellent Way

Music Highway

A few days ago this week, I heard on radio station WIHS 104.9 FM these words of wisdom  (Thought For Today, part 4, no. 49) given by Gerry Williams:

Patience is waiting with contentment.

When many of life’s trials, problems and needs come to our attention, instead of us griping and complaining, being angry or frustrated; instead of being spiteful and resentful, jealous or resentful at another individual, patience is a key for a better way of living. Yet, patience is one of the attributes of love that the apostle Paul wrote about in 1 Corinthians 13. Love is the best way – a more excellent way – for a happy life.

The video song below brings memories of when I was in the choir and the choir director at that time, Mrs. Spearman, sang it.

I could speak with the tongues of men and angels
(Love is the more excellent way)
But if I don’t have love, I’m just a clanging cymbal
(Love is the more excellent way)
I could have the faith to remove the mountains
(Love is the more excellent way)
But if I don’t have love then I am nothing
(Love is the more excellent way)

(Chorus)
Love is patient, Love is kind
Love is humble, all of the time
Not easily angered, enduring the test
So never forget
Love is the more excellent way

I could have the gift of prophecy
(Love is the more excellent way)
But if I don’t have love, does it profit me?
(Love is the more excellent way)
I could understand all mysteries
(Love is the more excellent way)
But if I don’t have love it’s not enough you see
(Love is the more excellent way)

(Chorus)

I could throw my body into the flames
(Love is the more excellent way)
But if I don’t have love, I don’t have anything
(Love is the more excellent way)
I could give to the poor everything I own
(Love is the more excellent way)
But a heart without love is just a heart of stone
(Love is the more excellent way)

(Chorus)

Love is the more excellent way (unison) (3x)
