When Love Is Found

1. When love is found
             and hope comes home,
    sing and be glad
             that two are one.
    When love explodes
             and fills the sky,
    praise God, and share
             our Maker's joy.

2.  When love has flowered
             in trust and care,
     build both each day,
             that love may dare
     to reach beyond
             home's warmth and light,
     to serve and strive
             for truth and right.

3.  When love is tried
             as loved-ones change,
     hold still to hope,
             though all seems strange,
     till ease returns
             and love grows wise
     through listening ears
             and opened eyes.

4.  When love is torn,
             and trust betrayed,
     pray strength to love
             till torments fade,
     till lovers keep
             no score of wrong,
     but hear through pain 
             love's Easter song. 

5.  Praise God for love,
             praise God for life,
     in age or youth,
             in calm or strife.
     Lift up your hearts!
             Let love be fed
     through death and life
             in broken bread.
