Only Love




By this all men
Will surely know
That we are His disciples
Throughout the land
Its proof will show
From people unto people
By this all men
Cannot deny
The Truth of whom we follow
Throughout the world
His Light will shine
As we love one another

One tiny spark
Will pierce the dark
One act will fill an ocean
No one can quell
The holy swell
That pours from love’s devotion
And none can dim
The Light of Him
Its halo is unshaken
Its power pure
Its hope secure
Its enemy o’er-taken

By this all men
Will surely know
That we are His disciples
For as we love
Thus we will prove
The I AM infallible
And then all men
Will surely know
The One True God of Heaven
For only love
Will truly show
That we have been forgiven

Only love
Yes, only love
Will prove our tongue’s confession
And only love,
Yes, only love
Is heaven’s sacred passion
And only love
Yes, only love
Will witness to the people
By this all men
Will truly know
That we are His disciples

  1. "Only love, yes, only love" a refrain that peels clear as a bell.
