Expository Songs from I Corinthians 12

I Corinthians 12:3

Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

Charles Wesley based one of the verses in “Spirit of Faith, Come Down” off this verse:

No one can truly say
that Jesus is the Lord,
unless thou take the veil away
and breathe the living Word.
Then, only then, we feel
our interest in his blood,
and cry with joy unspeakable,
“Thou art my Lord, my God!”

I Corinthians 12:31

But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

There are countless songs based from I Corinthians 13. What makes Babbie Mason’s “Love Is the More Excellent Way” unusual is that it uses the preceding verse, I Corinthians 12:31, as its basis:
