Full Text

1 God is love! for us he careth,
While upon the earth we move;

Chorus:
Mighty love, Matchless love,
Infinite and unchanging love,
Tender love, Saving love,
God is eternal love.

2 God is love! and pardon dwelleth
Where a soul his grace doth prove;
Everywhere his goodness telleth
God is mercy, God is love. [Chorus]

3 God is love! and as forever,
Years roll by and ages move;
Only he, he changes never,
The unchanging God is love. [Chorus]
