If Not For Love" reminds us that we may learn to love as the Savior loves by serving others and purifying our hearts and minds.

Text: Toni Thomas   Music: Diane tuiofu

If not for love, what then would send

The Son of God to dwell with men?

To leave His Father’s gracious throne

And wander earth without a home?

 

If not for love, why then would He,

The Lord of all, become a baby

And walk among the sons of men?

If not for love what then?

 

Verse 1

A manger in a cave,

The King of Kings no castle knows.

Swaddling rags for royal robes,

While at the inn the people sleep.

While shepherds guard their sheep

A sudden glory breaks the night

Feels the air with song and light

"The child is born; Immanuel!"

 

REPEAT CHORUS

Verse 2

One newly shining star

Summons wise men who will bring

Gifts to crown the baby king

Of gold and frankincense and myrrh.

And while the weary world

Winds its way without a pause

In their midst the Son of God;

His life a sacrifice for love.

 

REPEAT CHORUS
