Christian Camp Songs & Chorus Hymns #23

I spent many years in my late teens and early twenties working at Christian Camps.  I even met my husband at a Christian camp.  These wonderful memories of great experiences make Christian camp songs very special to me.

On top of featuring an old hymn each month in what I call "Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing" - I will also be featuring a chorus hymn every month - ENJOY!
Today's featured song is "The Gift of Love" - words and music by Hal Hopson.  Here again I was unable to find any historical information on this chorus hymn - only that it is based on 1 Corinthians 13.

"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or clanging cymbal.  If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing." 
1 Corinthians 13:1-3

(please continue reading the remainder of 1 Corinthians 13) 

I have included a YouTube video of this wonderful hymn (see below the lyrics) - ENJOY!

The Gift of Love
Words & Music by Hal Hopson

1. Though I may speak with bravest fire, and have the gift to all inspire, And have not love;  my words are vain, as sounding brass, and hopeless gain.

2.  Though I may give all I possess, and striving so my love profess, But not be giv'n by love within, the profit soon turns strangely thin.

3.  Come, Spirit come our hearts control, our spirits long to be made whole.  Let inward love guide every deed.  By this we worship and are freed.
