Hymn 134

by
 Religion vain without love.
1 Cor.
13:1-3.
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 heav'n and hell; Or could my faith the world remove, Still I am nothing without love.
Should I distribute all my store To feed the bowels of 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.
