Based upon the book of 1 John, this song explores themes of the divinity of Christ, unconditional love and Jesus’ sacrifice at the cross. It is also a declaration by those who sing it that they want to follow the perfect example of Jesus by living lives of love as his disciples.

A good song to sing around Easter time as well as throughout the year.

Please use this song in your church if you like it. There is a free chord chart below for you to download and use. If you do use it, please remember to report its use to CCLI as this really does help to support me financially to enable me to continue to write and record worship songs for the Church. Thank you.

Perfect Love

CCLI Number: 5579757

Perfect love, where can we find you?
Perfect love, how can we define you?
How can we define?

God sent His Son to us to show us how to live
A life of love
God sent His Son to die to take away our sin
There is no greater love
There is no greater love than this

Jesus Christ, now that we have found you
We desire to live as you have lived
To live as one

To live deeply, drawing from the source
Of life and love
To love each other, walking in the light
To live a life of love, to live a life of love (x2)

This is our desire (repeat)
