83R God Is Love Whose Mercy Brightens

Original Title: "God Is Love, His Mercy Brightens," John Bowring (1825), first tune, MARCHING,, Martin Shaw (1915), second tune, STOCKWELL,, Darius Eliot Jones; New Title: "God Is Love Whose Mercy Brightens," rev. REH (2008), MARCHING,


God is love; whose mercy brightens
All the paths in which we rove;
Bliss love wakes, and woe it lightens:
God is wisdom, God is love.

Chance and change are busy ever;
We decay and ages move;
But pure mercy waneth never:
God is wisdom, God is love.

E’en an hour that gloomy seemeth
Will a changeless goodness prove;
From the mist a brightness streameth:
God is wisdom, God is love.

One with earthly cares entwineth
Hope and comfort from above;
Everywhere true glory shineth:
God is wisdom, God is love.
