                    |||||| 
Although I speak in        tongues of men and angels I'm just sounding 
  

||||||                                     |||||| 
002220                                     000010 
||||||                                     |||||| 
sounding brass and tinkling cymbal without love 
  

||||||       |||||| 
022200       777000 
||||||       |||||| 
Love suffers long     Love is 
  

||||||        |||||| 
002220        022200 
||||||        |||||| 
kind          Enduring all 
  

|||||| 
777000 
|||||| 
things  hoping all things 
  

|||||| 
001010 
|||||| 
Love has no evil in mind.  If I had 
  

|||||| 
777000 (777070) 
|||||| 
the gift of prohpecy and all 
  

||||||                                          |||||| 
002220                                          000010 
||||||                                          |||||| 
knowledge and the faith to move the mountains 
  

||||||                     |||||| 
022200                     777000 
||||||                     |||||| 
            Even if I understood    all 
  

|||||| 
002220 
|||||| 
of the mysteries 
  

||||||           ||||||          |||||| 
022200           777000          001010 
||||||           ||||||          |||||| 
If I didn't have love                       I'd be nothing 
  

||||||           ||||||          ||||||         |||||| 
022200           777000          001010         001012 
||||||           ||||||          ||||||         |||||| 
  

|||||| 
777000 
|||||| 
Love never looks for love, love's not puffed 
  

||||||                      |||||| 
002220                      000010 
||||||                      |||||| 
up or angry or so touchy 
  

|||||| 
022200 
|||||| 
          Because it rejoices in the 
  

||||||       |||||| 
777000       002220 
||||||       |||||| 
truth    not in iniquity 
  

||||||         |||||| 
022200         777000 
||||||         |||||| 
          Love sees  like a 
  

|||||| 
001010 
|||||| 
child sees      As a child 
  

|||||| 
777000 
|||||| 
          I spoke as a child I thought 
  

||||||                       |||||| 
002220                       000010 
||||||                       |||||| 
and I understood as a child 
  

||||||                       |||||| 
022200                       777000 
||||||                       |||||| 
         but when I became a woman I 
  

|||||| 
002220 
|||||| 
put away childish things 
  

||||||       |||||| 
022200       777000 
||||||       |||||| 
and began to see 
  

||||||                             |||||| 
001010                             001012 
||||||                             |||||| 
          through a glass darkly            where as a 
  

|||||| 
777000 
|||||| 
child I saw it face to face now I only 
  

|||||| 
002220 
|||||| 
know it in part 
  

||||||          |||||| 
000010          022200 
||||||          |||||| 
                         Fractions in 
  
  

||||||           |||||| 
777000           002220 
||||||           |||||| 
me        of     faith and hope and love 
  

||||||             |||||| 
022200             777000 
||||||             |||||| 
and of these great three 
  

|||||| 
001010 
|||||| 
love is the greatest beauty, love 
  

||||||              |||||| 
777000              002220   (002224) 
||||||              |||||| 
Love                Love
