Godís Wondrous Love 578

Tune: Thomas Jefferson Allen, 1907
Lyrics: Thomas Jefferson Allen, 1907
Meter: 13s Half (13,13)
I have heard the gospel message sent to us today,
God is love, God is love,
And I know that Christ redeemed me, He's the truth, the way,
Hallelujah! God is love, God is love.

Chorus:

I've heard the news, the Savior reigns,
A place in heav'n for all remains,
His blood has cleansed sin's deepest stains;
God is love, God is love, our God is love.

Can my lips be mute then longer when such gifts are mine,
God is love, God is love,
When the Savior says so sweetly, ďAll is freely thine,Ē
Hallelujah! God is love, God is love.

(Chorus)

There'll be shouting at the coming of the Lord and King,
God is love, God is love,
And His loyal ones will gather round the throne and sing,
Hallelujah! God is love, God is love.

(Chorus)

I will sing the glad new anthem with the host above,
God is love, God is love,
With the saved I am now sharing in His wondrous love,
Hallelujah! God is love, God is love.

(Chorus)
