Love is patient
Love is kind
It does not envy
It does not boast
Love is not proud
It does not dishonor others
It is not self-seeking
Love 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

When I was a child
I talked like a child
I thought like a child
I reasoned like a child
When I became a man
I set aside childish ways
Now we see but a dim reflection as in a mirror; 
then we shall see face to face. 
Now I know in part
then I shall know fully
even as I am fully known
And now these three remain: 
faith, hope, and love
but the greatest of these is love
