Suggested Tune MORNING LIGHT (7.6.7.6. D.)


1. One word above all others
proclaims our Master's wish,
One word of splendid power,
and that great word is this:
Love - love will stand eternal,
more potent than all words,
for in self-giving loving
the gospel's clearly heard.

2. Our God is love who formed us
after His loving self;
His Son He sent to show us
how love lays down its life;
The Spirit works within us
transforming us to be
as selfless and as loving,
'till we love perfectly.

3. And if we truly love God
God's love is in our house,
love starts with our own children,
our siblings, and our spouse.
And if our love is from God
our love will overflow
to all the Lord loves dearly
wherever we may go.

4. We take delight in God's love -
we seek no human praise,
and as we share the gospel,
we'll give ourselves away.
We'll seek the lost and loveless,
and show them that's a lie,
for truly God does love them
as much as you and I.

5. One word above all others
proclaims our Master's wish,
One word of splendid power,
and that great word is this:
Love - love will stand eternal,
more potent than all words,
for in self-giving loving
the gospel's clearly heard.
