If We All Loved...



  

 
 


If we all loved each other
The way that He loved us
Then we would glimpse in every face
The beauty of Jesus

No banner-covered coffins
Would be ushered through the town
No gossip would be whispered
And no one would be cast down
No phrases like ‘world hunger’
Or ‘choose life’, ‘stop bullying’
Would plead from neon billboards
There would be no envying
No war-torn land, no blood-stained sand,
No violence or spite
If we all loved each other
Every wrong would be made right
And life’s burden would be lighter
Not weighted by greed or pride
It’s darker days made brighter
By the love on every side
If we all loved each other
The way that He loved us
Then we would all be family
And our hope, Jesus
