I AM NOTHING from 1 Corinthians 13, adapted by Joel Sattler 

 

I AM NOTHING  

Song lyrics based on Chapter 13 of the First Letter to the Corinthians by Saint Paul,

As found in the New Testament of the Holy Bible, adapted by Joel Sattler

 

 

I speak with the tongues of men

I speak with the tongues of angels

But if I haveth not charity

I am become a danger to me

 

If I’ve the gift of the prophets

Comprehending all mystery

But if I know not of history

I am become as if of the dead

 

If I have faith

enough to move mountains

Sell all I have

to feed the poor

But if of love

I have not learned

Though I may give

my soul to be burned

 

Then I am nothing

No no no no

Then I am nothing

No no no no

Then I am nothing

No no no no

Then I am nothing

No no no no

 

Doth not behave unseemly

Seeketh not her own

Not easily provoked

Rejoicing not wrongdoing

 

Thinketh not of evil

Beareth of all things

Believeth of all things

Hopeth of all things

 

Endureth of all things

But if of love I have not learned

Though I give my body to be burned

To be burned

 

Then I am nothing

No no no no

Then I am nothing

No no no no

Then I am nothing

No no no no

Then I am nothing

No no no no

 

For what we know in part

and what prophesy in part

But when the perfect comes

The partial will pass out of our hearts

 

When I was a child

I spoke as if a child doth sing

But when I became a man

I put away childish things

 

When I was a child

I spoke as if a child doth sing

But when I became a man

I put away childish things
