His Love

This reading is simple, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t need practice. Spend some time with the words and rhythm. You may want to stress a different word in the phrase "his love endured forever" each time it comes up.

I would suggest not reading the references as they break up the flow. They are there just for your reference.
