God is Love; and love enfolds us,
all the world in one embrace:
with unfailing grasp God holds us,
every child of every race.
And when human hearts are breaking
under sorrow’s iron rod,
then we find that self-same aching
deep within the heart of God.
–Stanza 2 from “God is Love, let heaven adore him”, hymn 379 in The Hymnal 1982
