1 Where’er I go on earth below
I see God’s love and care,
Along my way from day to day
So brightly singing there.

God is Love!
It is written ev’rywhere;
God is Love!
For His mercy and His care
Over all is brightly shining,
Brightly shining there;
God is Love,
God is Love!

2 He cares for lilies fair and sweet,
And sparrows when they fall;
He waits the children small to greet,
He loves and cares for all. [Refrain]

3 But best of all He gave for me,
From heav’n so bright above,
His Son, my Savior, Lord to be,
To show how great His love. [Refrain]
