1 Come, ye that know and fear the Lord!
And raise your souls above:
Let every heart and voice accord
To sing that—God is love.
2 This precious truth his Word declares,
And all his mercies prove;
While Christ, th' atoning Lamb, appears,
To show that—God is love.
3 Behold, his loving-kindness waits
For those who from him rove,
Till mighty grace their heart subdues
To teach them—God is love.
4 The work begun is carried on
By power from heav'n above;
And ev'ry step, from first to last,
Proclaims that—God is love.
5 In all his doctrines and commands,
His counsels and designs—
In ev'ry work his hands have framed,
His love supremely shines.
6 O! may we all, while here below,
This best of blessings prove,
Till warmer hearts, in brighter worlds,
Shall sing that God is love.
