Drive out all our fears,
Draw every heart to you,
And fill us with your perfect love
So we will be made new.
Heal our faithlessness,
Forgiving every sin,
And clothe us all in perfect love
For you, our heavenly King.
Bind our souls together
Till we live as one,
Then we will dwell in perfect love,
Becoming like your Son.
1. Perfect love drives out fear (1 John 4:18; NIV).
We know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love (Romans 5:5; NLT).
Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him (Colossians 3:10; NLT).
2. The Lord says, “Then I will heal you of your faithlessness; my love will know no bounds (Hosea 14:4; NLT).
He forgives all my sins (Psalm 103:3; NLT).
Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony (Colossians 3:14; NLT).
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength (Mark 12:29; NLT).
3. I want them to be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love (Colossians 2:2; NLT).
I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one (John 17:22; NLT).
Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them (1 John 4:16).
The Lord – who is the Spirit – makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image (2 Corinthians 3:18; NLT).
