God is love: His the care (Personent hodie – Theodoric)

Hymn – God is love: His the care – Lyrics

God is love: His the care,
Tending each, everywhere.
God is love, all is there!
Jesus came to show him,
That mankind might know Him!

Sing aloud, loud, loud!
Sing aloud, loud, loud!
God is good!
God is truth!
God is beauty!
Praise Him!

None can see God above;
We can share life and love;
Thus may we Godward move,
Seek him in creation,
Holding every nation. Refrain

Jesus lived on the earth,
Life and hope brought to birth
And affirmed human worth,
For He came to save us
By the truth He gave us. Refrain

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
