GOD IS LOVE


MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!


The residents at the nursing home
loved the English lyrics to a German favorite melody 
that my friend and I sang for them.

1.
Christmas is here! Come praise and sing!
God is love!
Angels to shepherds news did bring,
God is love!
Go now to Bethlehem and see
God’s gift from Heaven for you and me!
Worship the Christ on bended knee
God is love!

God is love! God is love!
Come, worship and His praises sing for God is love!

2.
Share this Good News with all you meet.
God is love!
Don’t live in darkness or defeat.
God is love!
Jesus came of His own free will!
All prophecy He did fulfill!
How blest are we! My heart be still!
God is love.

God is love! God is love!
Come, worship and His praises sing for God is love!

3.
Let your light shine so all will see!
God is love!
He breaks the chains and sets us free!
God is love!
Give him your will, your heart and mind
Go where He leads and you will find
For you He has His best designed!
Yes! God is love!

God is love! God is love!
Come, worship and His praises sing for God is love!

Hi Karin, Thinking of you and keeping you both in my prayers. Did you have family to visit for Christmas?

Beautiful lyrics. I am not familiar with that carol...but have fond memories of singing 'Ihr Kinderlein Kommet' together with my extended family every Christmas when I was growing up. I love those old German carols.

I'm a little late...but wish for you and your family and most blessed Christmas season!
