Gospel Message 174

Tune: Horace Neely Lincoln, 1895
Lyrics: Laura E. Newell, 1895
Meter: 13s Half (13,13)
Have you heard the gospel message sent to us today?
God is love, God is love;
Did you know that Christ redeemed you? He's the Truth, the Way.
God is love, God is love.

Chorus:

Good news to all, the Savior reigns,
A place in Heavín for all remains
His blood will cleanse sinís deepest stains,
God is love, God is love, our God is love.

There's a road that all may travel to the realms of bliss,
God is love, God is love;
And a home for you in glory, brighter far than this.
God is love, God is love.

(Chorus)

Did you know that Jesus suffered to redeem you soul?
God is love, God is love;
And to Heaven He would guide you, all your ways control.
God is love, God is love.

(Chorus)
