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

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


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

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


5  Belovèd, let us love: for only thus
Shall we behold that God Who loveth us.
