Beloved, let us love; love is of GodAuthor: Horatius Bonar
Published in 15 hymnals
Beloved, let us love , p. 162, i. 84. Through the kindness of the Rev. J. T. Wigner, editor of the Baptist Psalms & Hymns, 1858, and the Supplement thereto, 1880 (p. 1280, ii.), we learn that this hymn, with others, was sent him in manuscript and was included in the 1880 Supplement. It is not in Dr. Bonar's Communion Hymns, 1881. Mr. H. N. Bonar, in his Hymns by Horatius Bonar, &c, 1904, says in his Note, "The only piece printed in this selection which has not already appeared in an authorised collection of my father's hymns is 'Beloved, let us love: love is of God,’...but there is no doubt of its authorship, as I possess the original manuscript."
--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, New Supplement (1907)
