Anyone Know All the Words To This Song?
« on: October 09, 2006, 08:05:47 PM »
Praise God!
Back in 1991 or 1992 a black female gospel siinger sang this song every day on the radio. I memorized it and sang it in church a lot, but now I can't remember it. The first verse starts off like this: "Though I speak with tongues of angels, understanding mysteries, (somethiing, something, something, open blinded eyes to see)....
Then the end of the chorus says "If I don't have pure love, then it doesn't mean a thing". Who siings this song and what are the words? I can't find it anywhere on the Internet in any song lyrics website.
Somebody please help. I'm supposed to sing it at an event at our church (Pastor's Anniversary this month) and I can't find the words. Pray, Fast, search something.....

I don't think this is it, but I do remember a choir in my area that released an album with a song containing  those words based on Galatians I think around that same time. It was called "The Greatest Gift of All Is Love" by St. Agnes Baptist Church Choir.

But the more I'm looking at the words, I'm really trying to remember another song. If I can remember, I'll post it.

You are so right!!  :D

The words aren't in the cd jacket, but this is all I was able to make out...


Pure Love
(written by Kevin Broughton)
(recorded by Dottie Peoples


Verse 1:
If I speak in tongues of angels,
understanding mysteries
and in edification, open minds to see.

With a heart full of compassion,
to meet my brother's needs;
if I don't have pure love,
then it doesn't mean a thing.

Verse 2:
If I give all my possessions
just to be seen ?????,
spend all my time in service,
not really having God within.

With a heart full of desire,
to touch a world of sin;
if I don't have pure love,
then it doesn't mean a thing.

Chorus
If I don't love my brother like I should,
I'm just a clammoring symbol,
being proud and puffed up in my ways,
I won't see Jesus face to face.

If I lay up all my trophies
for all the world to see;
if I don't have pure love,
then it doesn't mean a thing.

Verse 3:
Now to sermons have been given
to stir the hearts of men,
but still the church still struggles
because they don't understand...

that pure love is the answer
to life's everything;
if I don't have pure love,
then it doesn't mean a thing.

Chorus

Goodman wrote the lyrics to Pure love for you but missed a few words.
Verse 1 is correct.
Verse 2 if i give all my possessions just to be seen of men, spend all my time inservice, not really having God within.
The rest is correct. I hope this helps :)
