1 Our God is love, the angels know
That Father dearly loves us so;
But, oh, the ransomed feel within,
The burning love we try to sing.

Yes, God is love, and, oh! how sweet!
His love in me is made complete;
I dwell in love, in God alone,
And share the bliss of heaven’s throne.

2 Our God is love, oh, praise His name!
I feel His love a burning flame;
How sweet to know He sets me free,
And perfects that concerning me! [Refrain]

3 Our God is love, oh, could I tell
The love that saved my soul from hell!
O Jesus, break the heart of stone,
And let Thy mighty love be known. [Refrain]

4 Our God is love that thought so dear,
Now sweeps away each doubt and fear;
I sweetly rest this soul of mine
Deep in the heart of love divine. [Refrain]

5 Our God is love, a boundless sea,
And, oh, the wondrous mystery!
His mighty billows o’er me roll,
And flood with rapture all my soul. [Refrain]
