1. Let us in love share that same love,
that Great Love we have received;
without reason or condition
let us love as we are loved.
It's the love that gives away all,
it's the friend that lays life down.
Oh how precious to be loved thus!
Spread it 'round, let love abound.

 

2. Let us love the One who loves us,
that Great Love who loved us first.
No excuses, no evasion,
let us love our God like this:
Love with passion and abandon -
without pause and without cause -
every last child that is loved by
that great Parent of us all.

 

3. Let us love all who are loved by
that Great Love who loves us all
no exception, nor omission,
let us love them one and all.
Love the stranger, love the outcast,
love the beggar and the thief;
Undeservéd we have been loved,
let us give as we receive.

 

4. Let us in love share that same love,
that Great Love we have received;
without reason or condition
let us love as we are loved.
It's the love that gives away all,
it's the friend that lays life down.
Oh how precious to be loved thus!
Spread it 'round, let love abound.
