Love, the fount of light from heavenAuthor: Nikolai F. S. Grundtvig
Tune: LIGHT (Lindeman)
Published in 8 hymnals
Love, the fount of light from heaven,
Is the root and source of life;
Therefore God’s decrees are given
With His lovingkindness rife.
As our Savior blest declareth
And the Spirit witness beareth,
As we in God’s service prove;
God is light and God is love.
Love, the crown of life eternal,
Love the brightness is of light;
Therefore on His throne supernal
Jesus sits in glory bright.
He the Light and Life of heaven,
Who Himself for us hath given,
Still abides and reigns above
In His Father’s boundless love.
Love, alone the law fulfilling,
Is the bond of perfectness;
Love, who came, a victim willing,
Wrought our peace and righteousness.
Therefore love and peace in union
Ever work in sweet communion
That through love we may abide
One with Him who for us died.
