Representative Text

1 Come, let us all unite to sing,
God is love.
Let heav’n and earth their praises bring,
God is love.
Let ev'ry soul from sin awake,
let ev’ry heart sweet music make,
and sing with us for Jesus’ sake,
for God is love.

Refrain:
God is love! God is love!
Come, let us all unite to sing that 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
that God is love. [Refrain]

3 What though our mortal flesh shall fail,
God is love!
Through Christ we shall o’er death prevail,
God is love!
While endless ages roll along,
we’ll triumph with the heav’nly throng
and this shall be our sweetest song,
that God is love! [Refrain]

4 How happy is our portion here,
God is love.
These promises our spirits cheer,
God is love.
God is our sun and shield by day,
our help, our hope, our strength and stay;
and will be with us all the way:
our God is love. [Refrain]

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 >
