1 Corinthians 13:1-4,7-8,12-13

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Though I speak with the tongues of men (1934), composed by Edward Bairstow (1874-1946)

Psalms 90:1-2; 144:3-4; 102:12; 90:15

Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

Lord, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him! or the son of man, that thou makest account of him!

Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

12 But thou, O Lord, shall endure for ever; and thy remembrance unto all generations.

15 Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.

Lord Thou hast been our refuge (1917) by Edward Bairstow (1874-1946)

Exodus 15:21,4

21 And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.
