1 Have you heard the whisper of the breeze?
God is love, God is love!
Have you heard the murm’ring of the trees,
Singing softly, sweetly, “God is love?”

Blessed song, echo on,
Glad message sound forever;
Ringing ‘neath the radiant skies above,
God is love, God is love!

2 Have you heard the birds’ exultant notes?
God is love, God is love!
Down from distant heights the carol floats,
Ringing gladly, clearly, “God is love!” [Refrain]

3 Have you heard the singing of the sea?
God is love, God is love!
Where the crested billows toss so free,
Telling, telling ever, “God is love!” [Refrain]
