if God has so loved us,
then we ought to love one another.
No-one has ever seen God…
if we love one another,
then God lives in us,
and his love is made perfect in us.
O Love, O God who created me, in your love recreate me.
O Love, who redeemed me,
fill up in me whatever part of your love
has fallen into neglect within me.
O Love, O God, who first loved me,
grant that with my whole heart,
and with my whole soul,
and with my whole strength,
I may love you.
Gertrude the Great
