1.

God’s love looks on the heart

And not upon our face

It does not ask for wealth

It warms like an embrace.

 

It prepares hearts for good

It softens bits of stone.

Its speech is understood

Its voice is simply known.

2.

God’s love looks on the mind

And not upon the frame

It smiles on the kind

And warms them like a flame.

 

It invigorates all

It fills us with vision

It lifts us when we fall

It guides each decision.

3.

God’s love looks on the soul

And not what holds it here.

Its touch can those console

Who tremble, sick with fear.

 

It is a sure resort,

It anchors in the waves,

It offers firm support,

It every creature saves.
