God is Love, His the Care

This is a hymn of praise about God's love. 

It was written by English Anglican priest, author and social-justice advocate Percy Dearmer (1867-1936). 

With meter 6.6.6.6.6 with refrain, it is almost always set to PERSONENT HODIE, a tune from the 16th century published in Pies Cantiones (1582).  These dates means that both the lyrics and tune are now in the public domain.

Lyrics

God is love: His the care,
Tending each, everywhere.
God is love, all is there!
Jesus came to show him,
That mankind might know Him!

Refrain:
Sing aloud, loud, loud!
Sing aloud, loud, loud!
God is good! God is truth!
God is beauty! Praise Him!

None can see God above;
We can share life and love;
Thus may we Godward move,
Seek him in creation,
Holding every nation.

Jesus lived on the earth,
Life and hope brought to birth
And affirmed human worth,
For He came to save us
By the truth He gave us.

To our Lord praise we sing,
Light and life, friend and King,
Coming down, love to bring,
Pattern for our duty,
Showing God in beauty.

  1. The version by P.M.Adamson is not a singer with a backing band. It is s multitrack recording by a solo artist. An official version of the song is available on reputable download sites or YouTube.
