Songblog: Love Never Fails (Brandon Heath cover)


"Love Never Fails" by Brandon Heath, 2009

This song, I think, echoes the message of the video I posted on Valentine's Day- love on a universal level. And I think that's important.

It describes everything that love is--including things we often forget. If love is a subject you've been struggling with lately, use this as a reminder of what love really means, and there there is always love, no matter what. We might not always see it, but it's there.

That's my dad, singing with me; or me singing with him. It's a song he chose for us to sing at my grandma's memorial service, because she was a very nurturing person, and the message of this song is something that would've meant a lot to her.

And hopefully, it means a lot to you. Sometimes we don't believe it when we hear the phrase "life is short." But it's true. Life's too short not to make the most of love and the people you love. Sadly, love is often forgotten, especially in anger or hate. So I hope this helps us all remember to respond always with love.

That's what matters.


Lyrics:


Love is not proud

Love does not boast

Love after all

Matters the most

Love does not run

Love does not hide

Love does not keep

Locked inside

Love is the river that flows through

Love never fails you

Love will sustain

Love will provide

Love will not cease

At the end of time

Love will protect

Love always hopes

Love still believes

When you don't

Love is the arms that are holding you

Love never fails you

When my heart won't make a sound

When I can't turn back around

When the sky is falling down

Nothing is greater than this

Greater than this

Love is right here

Love is alive

Love is the way

The truth the life

Love is the river than flows through

Love is the arms that are holding you

Love is the place you will fly to

Love never fails you
