God is the source of all that’s love,

He is its life and light.

Loves the ones of “highbrow” birth.


He loved the ones who evil chose,

But they ne’er loved Him.

They were rank odor to His nose,

And now have wrath to the rim.


Return God’s great glorious love.

Love Him with all your heart.

Till someday in a land above,

You and your Lord shall ne’re part.
