O Love, Our Mother Ever Near

Lyrics: Margaret Glenn Matters
Composer: Peter B. Allen

O Love, our Mother, ever near, To Thee we turn from doubt and fear!
In perfect peace our thoughts abide; Our hearts now in this truth confide:
Man is the child of God. Man is the child of God.
O Light, in Thy light we can see That man is ever one with Thee.
In love our lives Thou dost enfold, And now our waiting hopes behold
That man is God’s own child. That man is God’s own child.
O joy that ever will remain, Midst seeming sorrow, hate, and pain,
Our hearts to fill with this glad song That soars above the mists of wrong:
Man in the loved of Love. Man is the loved of Love. Man is the loved of Love.
Man in the loved of Love. Man is the loved of Love.
