4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
5 Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints
Philemon 1:4-5 KJV
When Christ said love your neighbor as yourself
And then to love each other as He them,
This truth He spoke should not be on a shelf,
But shown to all the world a precious gem.
Faith knows that all is well, as Christ is true,
And faith with love go surely hand in hand;
Confess your faith and give your love anew;
You can’t have one without the other fanned.
If you believe in love, you’re halfway there;
Now love what you believe to mark the way.
Put all your faith in Jesus; don’t despair,
For His great love for you is here to stay.
Both faith and love are gifts of God’s good grace;
When used together then you’ll win the race.
