Love personified

Royston 1946 (Reading)

Jesus is patient and will always wait,
for the right moment then not hesitate.
Jesus is so kind and thinks only the best
and will withstand the most arduous test.

Jesus does not envy but gives all away.
He does not count the cost He has to pay.
Jesus does not boast, but with humble deeds
reaches out tenderly and intercedes.

Jesus is not proud nor acts arrogantly.
But always gives so extravagantly.
Jesus is never obscene or ever rude
and speaks only sweetness with servitude.

Jesus is not self-seeking but just desires
only the best for the one He admires.
Jesus does not get angry or get annoyed
but will hold His peace and conflict avoid.

Jesus keeps no account of wrongs we do.
Cancels debts past, present and future too.
Jesus hates evil but in truth rejoices
and speaks out against all lying voices.

Jesus always protects the one He desires,
and does not grow weary and never tires.
Jesus will always trust and will never doubt,
and in complete confidence reaches out.

Jesus will hope beyond the improbable,
and He always does the impossible.
For Jesus never fails and continues on.
and will be there when all others have gone.
