The Divine Pattern of Love

The Divine Pattern of Love

(1 John 4:19)

  1. 1. The pattern of love, we learn from Jehovah

    Shows the way, guides our way.

    In all he has done, his dealings have shown us

    How to display his loving way.

    He gave us his Son, his dearest possession

    To cover our sin, forgiving transgression.

    What proof of his love​—its greatest expression!

    His way is love, Yes, God’s way is love.

  2. 2. When we walk his way, our love for each other

    Will be true, warm and true,

    Will move us to care for all of our brothers,

    Old ones and new, not just a few.

    True love for our God and love for our brother,

    We can’t have the one and not have the other.

    The faults of our friends, we readily cover,

    Proving our love, Our brotherly love.

  3. 3. The pattern of love, the bond that unites us

    Lets us be family.

    Our Father above now warmly invites us:

    “Come taste and see real unity.”

    Come share in the love and joy that define us;

    God’s spirit and Word, he gives to refine us.

    Our brothers and friends are here to remind us,

    God’s way is love. Jehovah is love.
