WHAT sound is this? a song through heav'n resounding,

God is Love!

And now from earth I hear the song rebounding,

God is Love!

Yes while adoring hosts proclaim,

Love is his nature, love his name,

My soul in rapture cries the same;

God is Love!

This song repeat, repeat, ye saints in glory,

God is love!

And saints on earth shout back the pleasing story,

God is love!

In this let earth and heaven agree,

To sound his love both full and free,

And let the theme forever be,

God is love!

The love of God is now my greatest pleasure,

God is love!

And while I live, I'll ask no other treasure,

God is love!

This theme shall be my song below,

And when to glory I shall go,

This strain eternally shall flow,-

God is love!
