God Is Love - His the Care

Full Text

1 God is love--his the care,
tending each, everwhere;
God is love--all is there!
Jesus came to show him,
that we all might know him:

Sing aloud, loud, loud;
sing aloud, loud, loud:
God is good, God is truth,
God is beauty--praise him!

2 Jesus shared all our pain,
lived and died, rose again,
rules our hearts, now as then--
for he came to save us
by the truth he gave us: (Refrain)

3 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: (Refrain)
