I’m love, expressing the Creator’s heart For God is love, and love is the greatest Magnifying miracle-mercy moves Toward prayer’s length; upward service strength Defying Venus and Aphrodite’s might. Wondrous sight is it to cite my marvels With my grace-light and care, I light and care Helping well thru my compassionate mercy My patience is like eternal hope… Yet in my reign forever; death, I’ll smite. Verily, I’m God’s most supreme kindness Causing Christ to carry cross of Calv’ry Leaving His throne of glory in Heaven To reach down to Adam’s world that’s condemned Granting salvation… life everlasting. My precious loss is hatred’s advantage Yet its grand schemer can never prevail For he’s a conquered foe back in Eden. Do you share God’s love? Is charity* yours? Be not faithless; trust the Lord to have me.
*1Peter 5:14 Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus.
