Love Never Fails

It is written in the Bible that "Love never fails." Reading it in English, I wonder if it means that love always succeeds, or if it means that love never ceases.

Since, in its immediate context, it is compared with things that will expire, I deduce it will never cease. I imagine water going over Niagara Falls. A torrent extending back to the horizon. It does not slow down. It does not decrease in its flow. There does not seem to be an end to its thundering power.
