God Is Wisdom, God Is Love

God is love: His mercy brightens
All the path in which we rove;
Bliss He wakes, and woe He lightens:
God is wisdom, God is love.

Chance and change are busy ever;
Man decays, and ages move;
But His mercy waneth never:
God is wisdom, God is love.

E’en the hour that darkest seemeth
Will His changeless goodness prove;
From the mist His brightness streameth:
God is wisdom, God is love.

He with earthly cares entwineth
Hope and comfort from above;
Everywhere His glory shineth:
God is wisdom, God is love.

John Bowring

Copied from my grandmother’s hymnal, Hymn Book, Methodist Episcopal Church, South: Nashville, TN, 1901, Hymn #26.

Daniel answered and said, “Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are His.”

Daniel 2:20

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

1 John 4:8

Note: The hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I make up a title or simply use the first line.
