Verse 1
C
I could write a melody
That
F
all of heaven’s choir sings
But
Am
if I
G
don't have
F
love
Then it means
Dm7
nothing
C
I can spit out some holy word
F
Something that you've never heard
But
Am
if I
G
don't have
F
love
It means
Dm7
nothing
Chorus
If I can’t
C2/E
love my neighbor like I love myself
F2
If I won’t
C/G
move when my brother cries out for help
F2/A
If I’m too
C2/E
proud to forgive before the sun goes down
F2
Then this
C/G
life that I’ve been living, what does it mean now?
F2/A
At best it all means
C2/E
nothing
F2
Without love it all means
C/G
nothing
F2/A

I can dine with kings and queens
My
F
name go down in history

Am
if I

don't have

love

nothing
So
C
take the old and make me new

Show me how to love like You

nothing
