Representative Text

1 God is Love, the Sun, dispelling
Darkness, doubt; how fast they flee;
Beam of glory, terror quelling,
Fall, fall on me.

Fall on me, fall on me,
Beam of Glory, fall on me.

2 God is Love and Law united,
Mercy joined to just degree,
Mercy, tho’ his law I’ve slighted,
Fall, fall on me. [Refrain]

3 God is Love, answer to anguish,
Ah! his face I fain would see,
Eye of pity, as I languish,
Fall, fall on me. [Refrain]

4 God is Love and Life unending;
Was, and is, and e’er shall be,
Softly may his peace descending
Fall, fall on me. [Refrain]
