NOTHING WITHOUT LOVE




Had I the tongues of Greeks and Jews,
And nobler speech, that angels use,
If love be absent, I am found,
Like tinkling brass, an empty sound.


Were I inspired to preach and tell
All that is done in heaven and hell;
Or could my faith the world remove,
Still I am nothing without love.


Should I distribute all my store
To feed the hungry, clothe the poor,
Or give my body to the flame,
To gain a martyr's glorious name;


If love to God and love to men
Be absent, all my hopes are vain;
Nor tongues, nor gifts, nor fiery zeal,
The work of love can e'er fulfil.


---Alternative verses---


Should I distribute all my store
To feed the cravings of the poor,
Or give my body to the flame,
To gain a martyr's glorious name;


Should I distribute all my store
To feed the cravings of the poor,
Or give my body to the flame,
To gain a martyr's glorious name;
