Representative Text

1 Let us sing the song of the birds on wing,
“God is Love,—God is Love.”
Let us sing the song that the angels sing,
“God is Love,—God is Love.”

Refrain:
O the love of God is o’er us,
Like the broodings of a dove,
Let us join the happy chorus,
God is Light and Truth, and God is Love.

2 Sweetest song that mortal has ever heard
“God is Love,—God is Love.”
Courts of Heav’n re-echo the joyful word
“God is Love,—God is Love.” [Refrain]

3 May each heart respond to the golden sound,
“God is Love,—God is Love.”
Till its gladness spreads all the world around,
“God is Love,—God is Love.” [Refrain]
