This is an old story
A story of love
A love uncommon to many
But known by many
A love we’ve read about
A pure and holy love
Love divine
Love unique
Love from above
Just the way love should be
The true definition of love
It is a different tale
A tale of reality
A tale of direction
Direction from God
Direction to a life of joy
A life filled with peace
Prints from the Holy Book
Are you curious?
Do you want to know about this love?
It can be found in life’s manual
So how should we love one another?
It is already written
It is in his word
Pure wisdom from the scriptures
Now let’s see how it is defined
Defined for all to comprehend

Love is patient
Love is kind
Love is not envious
Love does not brag
Love is not puffed up
Love is not rude
Love is not self-serving
Love is not easily angered
Love is not resentful
Love is not glad about injustice
Love rejoices in the truth
Love bears all things
Love believes all things
Love hopes all things
Love endures all things
And finally,
Love never ends

So before you say I do,
Before you merge as one
Before you exchange your vows
Know these things
Eat these words
Let it abide in your heart
Memorize these words
Understand these words
And practise these words
Be ready to give your best
In order to receive the best
Before you say I do
Say “I will do” to the word of God
Say “I do” to his commands
Fill your home with peace
And live a life of bliss
