1 What sound is this?
A song through heaven resounding,
God is love!
And now from earth
I hear the notes rebounding,
God is love!
Yes, while adoring hosts proclaim,
Love is his nature, love his name,
My heart with rapture cries the same,
That God is love!

2 This song repeat,
Repeat, ye saints in glory
God is love!
And saints on earth,
Shout back the pleasing story,
God is love!
In this let earth and heaven agree,
To sound his love, so full and free;
And let the theme forever be,
That God is love!
