Tunes suggested by the author from The United Methodist Hymnal:
408, Gift of Love
Other Long Meter (L. M.) tunes may be found listed in the hymnal on pages 926-927.
Hearts strangely warmed when God comes in
and takes away our guilt and sin.
God's grace ignites our empty lives,
Our fears are gone; our faith revives.
Hearts strangely warmed when love is there
and neighbors see how much we care.
The love of God to all we show;
we share our faith with all we know.
Hearts strangely warmed, our parish calls;
a world in need beyond our walls.
We serve the Lord in many ways.
Our voice is heard in hymns of praise.
When hearts are warmed, the church will stand
as people join with heart and hand.
Our lives together intertwine
with life eternal; love divine.
