Love Lightings

fFits tune: Cwm Rhondda

('Guide me, o thou great Jehovah')

1 John Chapter 4 parts

The last line of each verse is repeated


1. Love of God, John did full proclaim

Love of Jesus, Saviour's name

Love of the Spirit, in union

With the Father and the Son

Lift our hearts that we may praise you

And our minds daily renew


2. Christ they saw in human person

He redemption work has done

Fully human, fully divine

Born of God, of David's line

Seen and heard and touched here on earth

Bringing souls to true new birth


3. Here is love, 'tis not we first loved

But God to us He encoved (encovenanted)

Showed us first love while still sinners

Mercy, grace, on us confers

So our response, to Him our love

Inspired by the Spirit, dove


4. Eternal life to us promised

Lord, grant this we have not missed

Life is as we you, your Son know

He the Way, Truth, Life did show

That we may be saved for ever

Departing from Him never


5. Love here shown in word and action

Shown, revealed, unto each one

Love in giving and receiving

All our lives to you we bring

Asking humbly your anointing

Pour upon our every thing
