Hymn/Song Information

SUPERIORITY OF LOVE




If I all heavenly mysteries knew,
And had the tongue of angels too,
To make those glorious mysteries known
These would be nothing if alone.


Could I by faith the mountains move,
Faith would not save apart from love;
Undone and ruined should I be,
If destitute of charity.


Should I tormenting pains endure,
Or sell my goods to feed the poor:
Through want of love to God and man,
My every act would be in vain.


Happy the breast where love resides,
Where it oer all our thoughts presides;
Love will exert its greatest power,
When faith and hope are known no more.
