If I could write the future in the sky. . .

If I could speak with tongues of angels
If I could write the future in the sky
If I could know the wisdom of the ages
But have no love what would it mean

If I have faith, faith to move a mountain
If I give all I own to the poor
If I surrender my body to the flames
But have no love I have nothing

~ Rebecca St James's rewording of 1 Corinthians 13, the famous "Love Chapter" of the Bible. From the song For the Love of God from the album Transform. (Excellent album, BTW.)

Current Mood: Blah

Hey! We have this cd!
You're right, this is one of the best songs on the cd!

Haha yeah, it is an awesome album. I love how it has the orchestral 'introduction' and then jumps into the U2-esque riff on For the Love of God. . . it's probably one of my favourite RSJ songs! :-)

Yeah, it's awesome! It beats what I should be listening to (but am not)
violin music... sigh...
