Hymn/Song Information

Come ye that know and love the Lord And raise your




Come, ye that know and fear the Lord,
And raise your thoughts above:
Let every heart and voice accord,
To sing that “God is love.”


This precious truth His Word declares,
And all His mercies prove;
Jesus, the gift of gifts, appears,
To show that “God is love.”


Behold His patience, bearing long
With those who from Him rove;
’Till mighty grace their heart subdues,
To teach them—“God is love.”


The work begun is carried on,
By power from heaven above;
And every step, from first to last,
Proclaims, that God is love.


And O that you. whose hardened hearts
No fears of hell can move,
May hear the gospel's mildest voice,
That tells you, God is love.


Thousands, once vile and base as you,
Surround the throne above;
The grace that changed, has tuned their hearts
To sing, that God is love.


In all his doctrines and commands,
His counsels and designs—
In every work his hands have framed,
His love supremely shines.


Oh, may we all, while here below,
This best of blessings prove;
Till warmer hearts, in brighter worlds,
Proclaim that “God is love.”

Come, ye that know and fear the Lord,
And lift your souls above;
Let every heart and voice accord,
To sing that—God is love.


Come, ye that know and fear the Lord
And raise your souls above;
Let every heart and voice accord,
To sing that—God is love.


Come, ye that know and love the Lord,
And raise your thoughts above;
Let every heart and voice accord
To sing that "God is love."


This precious truth His Word declares,
And all His mercies prove;
While Christ, th' atoning Lamb, appears,
To show that “God is love.”


Behold His loving-kindness waits
For those who from Him rove;
And calls for mercy reach their hearts,
To teach them—“God is love.”
