I am excited to help lead a new worship song this coming weekend out of Hillsong Church called ‘Our God is Love’. The song comes from the verses below out of 1 John 4. I particularly love the line ‘our fear is overcome’ as it’s easy to allow our fears to hold us captive. When we encounter the love of God we are truly set free, and, in Him, we are fully forgiven, accepted and made clean. His love empowers us and gives us courage to face whatever obstacles and challenges come our way.

10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.’…18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear,’…16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.

Verse 1:
Every soul every beating heart
Every nation and every tongue
Come find hope in the love of the Father
Verse 2:
All creation will bow as one
Lift their eyes to the risen Son
Jesus Savior forever and after
This is love
Jesus came and died and gave His life for us
Let our voices rise and sing for all He’s done
Our fear is overcome
Our God is love
Our God is love
Verse 3:
Every distant and broken heart
Every prayer every outstretched arm
Finding hope in the love of the Father
Verse 4:
Age to age let His praises rise
All the glory for all of time
Jesus Savior forever and after
Age to age we will be singing
In the light of all He’s done
All the earth everyone singing
In the wonder of His love
