Lyrics:

God is love! The heav'ns are telling. God is love, let earth rejoice:
All creation singing praising and exalting with one voice.
God who laid the earth's foundation; God who spread the heavens above;
God who breathes through all creation: God is love, eternal love.

God is love, and love enfolds us, All the world in one embrace:
With unfailing grasp God holds us, Ev'ry child of ev'ry race.
And when human hearts are breaking under sorrow's iron rod,
Then we find that self same aching Deep within the heart of God.

God is love! With mercy boundless God sustains all human life.
God's eternal loving kindness Guides us through our earthly strife.
Sin and death and hell shall nev'er o'er us final triumph gain.
God is love, so love forever, o'er the universe must reign.
