Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

God is Love

Whispered by the evening breeze

Author: Charles Hutchinson Gabriel
Tune: HAYES (Beethoven)
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Whisper’d by the ev’ning breeze,
Chanted in the stately trees,
Sung by brooklet in the vale,
Shouted in the raging gale,
Hear it ringing:—“God is love!”
Gladness bringing, “God is love!”

Sweetest words below,—above,
“God is wisdom, God is love.”

2 In the silence of the night,
In the busy morning light,
In the murm’rings on the shore,
In the crashing thunder’s roar,
Hear it pealing:— “God is love!”
Softly stealing, “God is love!” [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis the them of bird and bee,
Flow’r, and breeze, and land, and sea;
Ev’ry thing in rapture cries,
And the answer from the skies,
Tells the story:— “God is love!”
Speaks His glory, “God is love!” [Refrain]
