This song was written for the Justice Choir Songbook. It is dedicated to the victims, and survivors, of hate crimes everywhere, and specifically for those at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016. Love is often the bravest thing we do. May love prevail. -Abbie

Love Is Love Is Love Is Love
Love is love is love is love.
Love is love is love is love.
Oh, love is love is love is love.
Oh, love is love is love is love. Oh...
(mantra) ||: Love, love, love. All we need is love, love love. All we need is :||
Ubi caritas et amor, where there's love,
Love is love.


Justice Choir-Twin Cities (Tesfa Wondemagegnehu, song leader), Westminster Presbyterian Church, Minneapolis, MN.

This round is meant to be completely flexible. It works beautifully a cappella, and it also works with simple piano chords, an organ ground bass, or try singing it over the top of any arrangement of Pachelbel's Canon in D.
