Litany: God Loved the World So Much

Here’s a litany inspired by John 3:16.  It was written by Roddy Hamilton

Litany
(inspired by John 3: 16)

1:         God loved the world so much
            that God sent Jesus the son
            so that all who believed in him
            would have eternal life

2:         God loved the world so much
            love gave everything it had
            that anyone who grasped the story of love
            would be grasped by love’s story
            and find what is eternal

1:         God loved the world so much
            heaven opened up itself completely
            so that whoever welcomed the kingdom in
            through works of love and justice
            would find the lasting wholeness of life

2:         God loved the world so much
            Jesus put on flesh and lived among us
            so that the face of God would be clear to humanity
            and the word of God would be clearly heard
            that no life is cheap enough to destroy

1:         God loved the world so much
            God went there Gods-self
            so that anyone who banked on love
            would discover life’s ultimate value
            and in so doing live in its fullness

2:         God loved the world so much
            God let Jesus gamble everything on love
            through to crucifixion and death
            so that all who ventured to love in that way
            would know what had been distilled in eternity

1:         God loved the world so much
            that God sent Jesus the son
            so that all who believed in him
            would have eternal life
