Every Bird Every Tree (Love's Around)

Bird sitting in a tree:   Every bird, every tree helps me know, helps me see, helps me feel God is love and love’s around.  From each river painted blue to the early morning dew, this is love, God is love, love’s around. 2  Every prayer, every song, makes me feel I belong to a world filled with love that’s all around. From each daybreak to each night, Out of darkness comes the light, This is love, God is love, love’s around. 3  Every mountain, every stream, every flower, every dream Comes from God, God is love and love’s around. From the ever-changing sky to a new-born baby’s cry, This is love, God is love, Love’s around.
This folk-style hymn about God's love was written in 1978 by British teacher and later author Peter Watcyn-Jones (b 1944).

It has been published in several books released by Kevin Mayhew Ltd, including:

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by Watcyn-Jones. This has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of A, the first few notes are C D E_ A B c_ E #E F_  B c d_

Lyrics

Every bird, every tree helps me know, helps me see,
helps me feel God is love and love’s around.
From each river painted blue to the early morning dew,
this is love, God is love, love’s around.

Every prayer, every song, makes me feel I belong
to a world filled with love that’s all around.
From each daybreak to each night,
Out of darkness comes the light,
This is love, God is love, love’s around.

Every mountain, every stream, every flower, every dream
Comes from God, God is love and love’s around.
From the ever-changing sky
To a new-born baby’s cry,
This is love, God is love, Love’s around.
