God Is Love

From the September 2, 1916 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

Dallas (Texas) News


Greatest truth of all the ages—
God is Love;
Voiced by prophets or by sages—
God is Love.
To those who with fear are quaking,
To those hearts with sorrow breaking—
Truth to which the world is waking—
God is Love.

To the sick and heavy laden
God is Love;
Those to whom come tears unbidden,
God is Love.
To those who in grief are sighing,
In despair to God are crying,
And on beds of pain are lying,
God is Love.

Love it is that starts them singing—
God is Love;
Love it is the truth is bringing—
God is Love.
Love it is that heals and brightens,
Love our hold on Truth but tightens,
And the heavy burden lightens—
God is Love.

Those in doubt will find with gladness
God is Love,
And in joy forget their sadness—
God is Love.
Love is Life, and Truth, and power,
Love our rock and our high tower;
Love is with us every hour—
God is Love.

By still waters Love is leading—
God is Love;
And the hungry, Love is feeding—
God is Love.
'Long life's devious paths Love guideth,
When in God the heart confideth;
Yea, in Love God's child abideth—
God is Love.

Every heartache Love will banish—
God is Love.
Every ill and grief will vanish—
God is Love.
For those whom error hath affrighted
Valleys dark by Love are lighted—
'Tis by Love all wrongs are righted—
God is Love.

Let us then forget our sadness—
God is Love.
Let this truth turn grief to gladness—
God is Love.
Let our love for man grow dearer;
Heaven itself will then draw nearer,
And the dawn of Truth grow clearer—
God is Love.
