God is love

Come, ye that know and fear the Lord,
And raise your thoughts above:
Let every heart and voice accord,
To sing that "God is love."

This precious truth His Word declares,
And all His mercies prove;
Jesus, the gift of gifts, appears,
To show that "God is love."

Behold His patience, bearing long
With those who from Him rove;
'Till mighty grace their heart subdues,
To teach them -- "God is love."

Oh, may we all, while here below,
This best of blessings prove;
Till warmer hearts, in brighter worlds,
Proclaim that "God is love."

By George Burder (1752-1832)

I John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

We should all strive for a greater love. Not by mere words or planned occasions, but of a life which will allow the real love to dwell within us.
