Luv Is A Verb

Album: Free At Last: 10th Anniversary (2002)

Songfacts®:

  • This song explains in very simple and obvious terms how love requires actions rather than just words. The first few verses are just trying to get the words together to explain it, but then in the final verses Jesus is used as the role model and example for love, typified by the words: "How much more love can the Son God give." Jesus displayed the ultimate love by dying on the cross, and we should show Jesus' love to others by actions. >>

  • Jazzz from FrankfurtAnother one of my all time favorites from the 90ties besides their song "Jesus Freak". Love is s.th. more than that word everyone overuses. It´s something you can show to everybody and in all that you are doing. Then the world could be so much of a better place.
