SONG 105

“God Is Love”

“God Is Love”

(1 John 4:7, 8)

  1. 1. God is love, and he invites us:

    ‘Walk with me and love my way.’

    When we love both God and neighbor,

    Gracious deeds will fill each day.

    Therein lies the key to living;

    Therein lies the life we seek.

    Christlike love will never fail us;

    Christlike love through us will speak.

  2. 2. Love of truth moves us to action;

    Love of God moves us to love.

    When we fail he seeks to help us;

    By his strength we rise above.

    Love is pure and never jealous;

    Love is kind and bears all things.

    May we grow to love our brother;

    May we taste what true love brings.

  3. 3. Never let resentment lead you;

    May it never take your hand.

    Look to God, and he will guide you;

    He will teach you these commands:

    Love of God and love of neighbor,

    Ev’rything that love should be.

    May we always show to others

    Godlike love, yes, tenderly.
