1 Our God is love; and all his saints
His image bear below:
The heart with love to God inspired,
With love to man will glow,
With love to man will glow.
2 None who are truly born of God
Can live at enmity;
Then may we love each other, Lord,
As we are loved by thee,
As we are loved by thee.
3 Heirs of the same immortal bliss,
Our hopes and fears the same,
The bonds of love our hearts unite,
With mutual love inflame,
With mutual love inflame.
4 So may the unbelieving world
See how true Christians love;
And glorify our Savior's grace,
And seek that grace to prove,
And seek that grace to prove.

Our God is love: and all His saints. [Brotherly Love.] We have not been able to trace this hymn beyond Cotterill’s Selection, 1819, No. 129, where it is given in 4 stanzas of 4 lines, and headed,”For Christian Love.” It is not by Cotterill, and although sometimes attributed to Wilkinson, its authorship is unknown. It is in somewhat extensive use.
