Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

949. Our God Is Love

1 Our God is love, the angels know
That Father dearly loves us so;
But, oh, the ransomed feel within,
The burning love we try to sing.

Refrain:
Yes, God is love, and, oh! how sweet!
His love in me is made complete;
I dwell in love, in God alone,
And share the bliss of heaven’s throne.

2 Our God is love, oh, praise His name!
I feel His love a burning flame;
How sweet to know He sets me free,
And perfects that concerning me! [Refrain]

3 Our God is love, oh, could I tell
The love that saved my soul from hell!
O Jesus, break the heart of stone,
And let Thy mighty love be known. [Refrain]

4 Our God is love that thought so dear,
Now sweeps away each doubt and fear;
I sweetly rest this soul of mine
Deep in the heart of love divine. [Refrain]

5 Our God is love, a boundless sea,
And, oh, the wondrous mystery!
His mighty billows o’er me roll,
And flood with rapture all my soul. [Refrain]
