Love Is Of GOD

BELOVED, let us love:
love is of God;
In God alone hath love
its true abode.

Beloved, let us love:
for they who love,
They only, are His sons,
born from above.

Beloved, let us love:
for love is rest,
And he who loveth not
abides unblest.

Beloved, let us love:
for love is light,
And he who loveth not
dwelleth in night.

Beloved, let us love:
for only thus
Shall we behold that God
who loveth us.

~Horatius Bonar from Hymns of Horatius Bonar

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

John, from 1 John 4
