Text:

Dearly beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God.

        Carissimi, diligamus nos invicem, quia caritas ex Deo est.

And everyone who loves is born of God, for God is love.

        Et omnis qui diligit, ex Deo natus est, quoniam Deus caritas est.

No one has ever seen God. But if we love one another,

        Deum nemo vidit umquam. Si diligamus invicem,

God abides in us, and his love is perfected in us.

        Deus in nobis manet, et caritas ejus in nobis perfecta est.

God is love: and those that abide in love

        Deus caritas est: et qui manet in caritate,

abide in God, and God in them.

        in Deo manet, et Deus in eo.

1 John 4: 7,8b,12,16b
