Worship leaders are welcome to use this hymn in services, but please
flatter me by letting me know that you are using it. Email me! I wrote the tune Inman for this hymn.
We live and move and have our breath
not for the sake of gold.
No servants in the cause of death,
Our lives for love unfold:
Such love as mends the broken heart
And casts the sword away;
Such love as held us at the start
Will ever be our stay.
No name more worthy of our praise
Has come from human tongue
Than Love Divine, our God always,
Our everlasting song.
Recall our hearts to love's command;
Break hatred's tyranny;
For justice, God, make strong our hands;
Return our lives to thee.
