Reflection – If Ye Love Me (Tallis)

The Lay Clerks of Ely Cathedral sing Thomas Tallis’ moving work, If Ye Love Me, as part of the Cathedral’s #LiveHolyWeek‚Äč campaign

Phlippians 2:13

For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.”

1 John 4:7-13

“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.  Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.  This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.  Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.  No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.

This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit.”
