Let Love Be...


Happy One of 365 Days in a year to celebrate love!

Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying,
  36“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”

37Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God 
with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’
  38This is the first and great commandment. 
39And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
  40On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

Let love be our compass, it’s steering is true 
Let love be the drive in all we say and do 
Let love be our Master; then we will endure 
Let love be the servant of Duty so pure 

Let love be a flower that blooms all year long 
Let love be the author of our heart’s song 
Let love be our anchor, in duels of desire 
Let love be the tinder that fuels its fire 

Let love be the wish that turns into command 
Let love be the force that no foe can withstand 
Let love be the Beauty time cannot annul 
Let love be the joy that keeps our hope-full 

Let love be God’s whisper that He will provide 
Lot love be our Mainstay, whatever betide 
Let love be the answer to every why 
Let love be a wellspring that never runs dry 

Let love be the Greatest Command we revere
Let love be devotion's ocean of glad cheer
Let love's first-hand grace, scarred with Hard Agony
Help us find our third place with humility

Let love be the wonder that wakens the soul 
Let love be our comfort when doubt’s dark waves roll 
Let love be the picker-upper when we fall 
Let love be our Greatest Achievement of all
