God is Love and All who Live in Love

God is love, and all who live in love
abide in God, and God abides in them. {2}

The love of Christ has gathered us as one;
in him let us rejoice; in him let us be glad.
Let us revere and love the living God.
With heart and mind and soul now let us love sincerely.

Therefore, as now we gather into one,
let discord find no place, nor hatred rule our hearts.
Let evil deeds and bitter words now cease,
that Christ stay in our midst and dwell with us forever.
