  1. God's Love
    Poet: Nila K. Bartley


    God's love is expressed in many ways,
    In family, friends, money, and other blessings galore all of our days,
    For we all are precious to Him,
    Jesus did not die on a whim,
    His love beyond measure for each of us is unique,
    It brings me to tears so that I cannot speak,
    Each one of us is a favorite to God,
    Everyone from the poor to the rich on this planet of sod,
    Do not think you have to forever labor,
    His great love does not depend upon our behavior,
    For love is not something God does--- it is who He is,
    That is why I accepted Christ and am forever His.



  2. God's Love
    Poet: Mary C. Ryan


    Midst scenes of distress, oh I what would we do,
    If God's love like His rainbow was not
    Encircling the world, with its chasms of woe,
    Where the sin-burdened souls writhe in despair?

    Our heart's strings would snap, when life's cold storms blow.
    Blighting the hopes of our sunniest hour,
    If the soul in its anguish then did not know
    That all things were made and ruled by God's pow'r.

    Alone on life's sea, oh! where would we drift.
    If God's love did not encircle the soul;
    Bearing it onward to faith's tow'ring cliff,
    As the ages of eternity roll?

    Our bark would be wrecked, on some rocky
    Where powers of darkness ever would reign,
    If we knew not, when our voyage was o'er,
    That smiles of our Lord would banish all pain.

    When sowing the wheat and reaping the tares.
    And struggling to rise, we stumble and fall.
    What could we do, to escape Satan's snares,
    If God's love was not a refuge for all?



  3. God Is Love
    Poet: John Bowring


    I cannot always trace the way
    Where Thou, Almighty One, dost move,
    But I can always, always say,
    That God is love.

    When fear her chilling mantle throws
    O'er earth, my soul to heaven above,
    As to her native home, upsprings,
    For God is love.

    When mystery clouds my darkened path,
    I'll check my dread, my doubts reprove;
    In this my soul sweet comfort hath,
    That God is love.

    Yes, God is love; a thought like this
    Can every gloomy thought remove,
    And turn all tears, all woes, to bliss,
    For God is love.



  4. I can always, always say, That God is love.

  5. God is True
    Poet: John Zurn

    The day may groan
    and signs break down
    while night may seem uncertain.
    But I still know
    that God is now
    beyond my restless feelings.

    My thoughts may sink
    and hopes run out
    while words feel dull and tired.
    Yet God exists
    and when I’m lost
    my Lord saves and inspires.

    This world may tempt
    and offer ease
    while I must trust salvation;
    and I’d regret
    the loss of peace
    if life had no direction.

    My spirit lives
    and God is true
    and love is his connection.
    The Lord is proof
    that me and you
    are under God’s protection.

    Christian Poems About Love


  7. The Fullness Of His Love
    by Frances Ridley Havergal


    The fullness of His blessing
    encompasseth our way;
    The fullness of His promises
    crowns every brightening day;
    The fullness of His glory
    is beaming from above,
    While more and more we realize
    the fullness of His love.



  8. Valley Of Rest
    Poet: Ellwood Haines Stokes


    This valley rest be thine,
    Rest nobly won, thine by the toil of years;
    Rest which has come of struggle and of tears;
    Sweet prelude to the rest of higher spheres;
    Here, evermore entwine
    Such fragrant flowers as grew in Eden's bliss,
    And never bloom except in vales like this.

    Home's sweetest rest is here;
    Love's golden throne! Love's coronation day!
    Love weaves for thee her softest, sweetest lay,
    Love walks with thee in love's delicious way, -
    White robed, with heart sincere,-
    She lisps of all things, beautiful and good,
    And bathes thy brow with tears of gratitude.

    Though in the valley still.
    Thy saintly years are as the mountain's height,
    Where widening visions burst upon thy sight,
    And gardens of thy toil blossom in light;
    Bright hopes thy spirit fill.
    While tides of joy in softest murmurs roll,
    And home's sweet loves are song birds of the soul.

    God's love is over all!
    In measure broader than the broadest sea.
    In all its nature perfect purity.
    In full "Baptisms" may it come to thee,
    Baptisms few nor small,
    Then sing anew thy mother's cherished psalms,
    Till altogether wave victorious palms.



  9. God is True
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    As we love our children, God loves us so,
    A true love that continues to grow.
    His love knows no bounds, it's pure and divine,
    In every heartbeat, His affection will shine.

    He cherishes us more than we can comprehend,
    Guiding us on a journey that'll never end.
    So, let us rejoice and let our spirits be lifted,
    For the boundless love of God, which leaves us gifted.



  10. A Love Beyond Our Minds
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    In heavens vast, where angels sing,
    A love beyond our minds takes wing.
    Its power, depth, and strength divine,
    Eludes our grasp, like endless time.

    With humble heart we seek to find,
    God's love profound, so pure and kind,
    Yet, as mortals bound, we comprehend,
    Such love transcends what we can comprehend.



  11. Love Of God
    Poet: F. W. Faber


    For the love of God is broader
    Than the measure of mankind;
    And the heart of the Eternal
    Is most wonderfully kind.

    If our love were but more simple
    We should take Him at his word;
    And our lives would be all sunshine
    In the sweetness of our Lord.



  12. God's Patient Love
    Poet: Unknown


    God's patient love! Misunderstood
    By hearts that suffer in the night.
    Doubted - yet waiting till Heaven's light
    Shall show how all things work for good.

    God's endless Love! What will it be
    When earthly shadows flee away,
    For all eternity's bright day
    The unfolding of that Love to see!



  13. Great Gift
    Poet: Alaurice Francis Egan


    If we love God, we know what loving is,
    For love is God's, He sent it to the earth,
    Half human, half divine, all glorious, -
    Half human, half divine, but wholly His;
    Not loving God, we know not love's true worth,
    We taste not the great gift He gave to us.



  14. Gift Of Heaven
    Poet: Unknown


    Oh never mind the months and days;
    The things that people wear
    Are all outside; there's something else
    That's ever young and fair.
    'Tis love that makes the joy of life,
    Love - the best gift of Heaven.



  15. 'Tis love that makes the joy of life, Love - the best gift of Heaven.
    Heaven Poems


  16. The Love Of God
    Poet: Saxe Holm


    Like a cradle rocking, rocking,
    Silent, peaceful to and fro,
    Like a mother's sweet looks dropping
    On the little face below, -
    Hangs the green earth, swinging, turning,
    Jarless, noiseless, safe and slow;
    Falls the light of God's face bending
    Down, and watching us below.

    And as feeble babes that suffer,
    Toss and cry, and will not rest.
    Are the ones the tender mother
    Holds the closest, loves the best.
    So when we are weak and wretched,
    By our sins weighed down, distressed,
    Then it is that God's great patience
    Holds us closest, loves us best.

    O great Heart of God! whose loving
    Cannot hindered be nor crossed;
    Will not weary, will not even
    In our death itself be lost, -
    Love divine! of such great loving
    Only mothers know the cost, -
    Cost of love, which, all love passing,
    Gave a Son to save the lost.



  17. God Hears
    Poet: Whittier


    The dear God hears and pities all,
    He knoweth all our wants,
    And what we blindly ask of Him
    His love withholds or grants.

    And so I sometimes think our prayers
    Might well be merged in one,
    And nest and perch, and hearth and church,
    Repeat " Thy will be done."



  18. Love Unchanged
    Poet: Owen Meredith


    Life's shadows fluctuate; God's love does not,
    And His love is unchanged, when it changes our lot.
    Looking up to this light, which is common to all,
    And down to these shadows on each side that fall,
    In Time's silent circle, so various for each.
    Is it nothing to know that they never can reach
    So far, but that light lies beyond them forever?



  19. There's Not A....
    Poet: G. Griffin


    There's not a flower that decks the vale,
    There's not a beam that lights the mountain,
    There's not a shrub that scents the gale.
    There's not a wind that stirs the fountain,
    There's not a hue that paints the rose.
    There's not a leaf around us lying;
    But in its use some beauty shows,
    God's love to us and love undying!

  21. God's All-Embracing Love
    Poet: Eliza Scudder


    Thou grace divine, encircling all,
    A soundless, shoreless sea
    Wherein at last our souls shall fall;
    O love of God most free,

    When over dizzy steeps we go
    One soft hand blinds our eyes,
    The other leads us, safe and slow,
    O love of God, most wise!

    And though we turn us from thy face,
    And wander wide and long,
    Thou hold'st us still in thine embrace,
    O love of God most strong!

    The saddened heart, the restless soul,
    The toil-worn frame and mind,
    Alike confess thy sweet control,
    O love of God most kind!

    But not alone thy care we claim
    Our wayward steps to win;
    We know thee by a dearer name,
    O love of God, within!

    And filled and quickened by thy breath
    Our souls are strong and free
    To rise o'er sin, and fear, and death,
    O love of God, to thee!



  22. The Silence
    Poet: Edgar Nye


    When the burdens of life get too heavy
    And what should be sweet seems as gall,
    I go on a soul-cleansing journey
    That shows me the need of it all.

    Away from Life's troubled pathway,
    Through the valley and up the hill,
    To the peak of a lofty summit where
    The pulse of the world stands still;

    There I see God's love all about me
    In the wonderful things He has made,
    And peacefully return from the Silence
    To take up my life unafraid.



  23. O Love Divine
    Poet: Clara McAlister Brooks


    O love divine! no soul has e'er
    Thy wondrous depths explored;
    O priceless gift! we fain would have
    Thy riches on us poured.
    Let mortals join with all their might,
    Let earth and heaven both unite
    To sing- thy praise by day and night;
    The half can ne'er be told.

    O love divine, what treasures yet
    Within thy coffers lie!
    The gold and silver of the earth
    Would not thy riches buy.
    E'en though the sands upon the shore
    Of every sea should turn to ore
    Of choicest metal, 'twere no more
    Than naught compared to thee.

    O love divine, in thee our souls
    Eternal pleasures find,
    Surpassing all that earth could give,
    Were all its powers combined.
    Thy music sweet we love to sing,
    Our spirits ever to thee would cling;
    An offering now of praise we bring
    In humble sacrifice.

    O love divine, 'tis wonderful
    That mortals here below
    May share thy grace most excellent,
    Thy wondrous power know!
    Around our hearts forever entwine,
    And let thy beauties in us shine,
    That we may be, O love divine,
    Completely lost in thee.



  24. The Love Of God
    Poet: Unknown


    Could we with ink the ocean fill.
    Were the whole world of parchment made.
    Were every single stick a quill,
    Were every man a scribe by trade;
    To write the love of God alone
    Would drain the ocean dry;
    Nor could the scroll contain the whole
    Though stretched from sky to sky.



  25. What Is Love
    Poet: William Clegg


    That pure, celestial, never dying fire,
    Which prompts the songs of heaven‚€™s immortal choir;
    An attribute of heaven, sublime and pure,
    True charity, which ever will endure;

    The strong impetus of unmeasured speed
    Of angels sent to saints in times of need;
    The arm of Deity encircling man,
    ‚€™Till fully saved by His eternal plan.

    The power supreme that casts out slavish fear
    And fills the soul with peace, when death is near;
    Knows no suspicion, fears no evil day,
    For he who loves his Maker, will obey.

    A feast divine when free from sin‚€™s alloy;
    A store exhaustless of unmingled joy.
    ‚€™Tis mercy‚€™s highway from the throne above,
    ‚€™Tis Heaven indeed, for God Himself is Love!



  26. The God Of Love
    Poet: Ella Williams


    Daniel's wisdom may I know,
    Stephen's faith and patience show,
    John's divine compassion feel,
    Moses' meekness, Joshua's zeal;
    Run like persevering Paul,
    Win the prize and conquer all.

    Mary's love may I possess,
    Lydia's tender-heartedness,
    'Peter's ardent spirit feel,
    James' faith by works reveal;
    Like young Timothy may I
    Every sinful passion fly.

    Job's submission let me know,
    Samuel's call, O may I hear,
    Lazarus' happy portion share;
    Let Isaiah's hallowed tire
    All any new born soul inspire.

    Mine be Jacob's wrestling prayer,
    Gideon's valiant steadfast care,
    Joseph's purity impart,
    Isaac's meditative heart;
    Abraham's friendship let me prove,
    Faithful to the God of love.

    Most of all, may I pursue
    That example Jesus drew,
    In my life and conduct show
    How He lived and walked below;
    Day by day through grace conferred,
    Imitate my dearest Lord.

    Then shall I these worthies meet.
    With them bow at Jesus' feet,
    With them praise the God of love,
    With them share the joys above,
    With them range the blissful shore,
    Meet them all to part no more.



  27. On The Cross
    Poet: John Zurn

    On the cross, He bore our pain and strife,
    Jesus, the giver of eternal life.
    In His sacrifice, fear of death unwound,
    Comfort and hope in grief we found.

    His love pierced through the darkest night,
    Filling our hearts with radiant light.
    With Him beside, in every sorrow we face,
    We're assured of peace and endless grace.



  28. God Is Love
    Poet: Unknown


    Lo! the heavens are breaking,
    Pure and bright above;
    Light and life awaking,
    Murmur, "God is love."

    Music now is ringing,
    Through the leafy grove,
    Feathered songsters, singing,
    Warble, "God is love."

    Wake, my heart, and springing,
    Spread thy wings above;
    Soaring still, and singing,-
    Singing, "God is love."
