God Is the Love

 

God is the love that feeds my soul;

God is the love that makes me whole;

God is the love that flows from me;

God is the love that sets me free.

 

God is the hearing of the call –

Never to judge the ones who fall;

Help free the ones who feel they fail,

Imprisoned in their private jail.

 

God is the source of gifts and skill;

God is the peace that keeps us still;

God is the ‘calm’ that pacifies;

Helps to dispel what terrifies.

 

God is the hope that moves us on;

God is the strength we lean upon;

May we encourage those who strive;

Ensure that all new truths survive.

 

God is the mystery in us all;

God is below and overall;

So when we serve or give or care

It’s God’s involvement everywhere.
