GOD IS LOVE
“God is love!” - He loves us freely,
With an everlasting love.
In eternal love He chose us
And ordained our place above.
"God is love" - See how He shows it,
See His Son upon the tree!
God incarnate died for sinners,
To forgive and set us free.
"God is love!” - In love He called us
By His Spirit's grace and pow'r:
By almighty grace He saved us,
At His own appointed hour.
"God is love” - His love, most tender,
Wisely rules this world below
For the good of all His people,
And all good He will bestow.
"God is love!” - He will preserve us,
He will keep us to the end:
He will never, never leave us,
Nor will let us e'er leave Him.
"God is love' - And if we know Him,
We will love each other too,
And in love we'll walk before Him
'Til our God makes all things new.
(Tune: Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus)
