Beloved, let us love: love is of God


Belovèd, let us love:
love is of God;
in God alone hath love
its true abode.

Belovèd, let us love:
for they who love,
they only, are his sons,
born from above.

Belovèd, let us love:
for love is rest,
and he who loveth not
abides unblest.

Belovèd, let us love:
in love is light,
and he who loveth not,
dwelleth in night.

Belovèd, let us love:
for only thus
shall we behold that God
who loveth us.
