Love it was that Made Us (God is Love)

This hymn is popular in various countries in Asia and India.   The author and composer are unknown, and it does not appear to have been published in any English-language hymnals.

It has been referred to as an "old hymn" in this blog from Ireland - which is un-dated but likely to have been published in the early 21st century.

And it was used at the 2014 funeral of an Italian sister, educated in the UK who lived and worked in Hong Kong (ref.) - often, hymns at such events are "old favourites" of either the deceased or the community.

No sheet music for it has been found.   The guitar chords presented below are one person's interpretation of the tune.

If you have any information about where it came from, please leave a message in the Comments section at the bottom of this page.

Lyrics

Chorus:
Love it was that made us
And it was love that saved us
Love was God’s plan, when He made man
Whose divine nature is Love.
Born of God’s love we must love Him
That’s why He made us to love Him.
But only when we love all men
Can we partake of God’s love.
But only when we love all men
Can we partake of God’s love.

Love is a wonderful thing
Joy in our hearts it will bring,
Where there’s true love there is God,
And where there’s God there is Love.

Christ said: Love must be a sign
By which men will know you are mine,
A new commandment I give,
Each other love as I did.
