Representative Text

COME, let us all unite to sing:
God is love!
Let Heaven and earth their praises bring,
God is love!
Let every soul from sin awake,
Each in his heart sweet music make,
And sing with us, for Jesus’ sake:
God is love!

2 O tell to earth’s remotest bound,
God is love!
In Christ we have redemption found,
God is love!
His blood has washed our sins away,
His Spirit turned our night to day,
And now we can rejoice to say:
God is love!

3 How happy is our portion here,
God is love!
His promises our spirits cheer,
God is love!
He is our sun and shield by day,
Our help, our hope, our strength, our stay;
He will be with us all the way;
God is love!

4 In Canaan we will sing again:
God is love!
And this shall be our loudest strain:
God is love!
Whilst endless ages roll along,
We’ll triumph with the heavenly throng
And this shall be our sweetest song:
God is love!

Kingsbury, Howard. This name is associated with the popular hymn in days gone by, "Come, let us all unite and sing, God is love!" (God is Love), but concerning the same we have failed to gain any information. We know personally that the hymn was in common use nearly forty years ago (circa 1850). --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
