lyrics

At the end of his life, Jesus gathered his friends.
They were discouraged, and they were afraid.
He told them, "Love one another, as I have loved you."
Love will drive fear away; it'll drive fear away.

He could not keep death at bay.
But love, it'll drive fear away.
Our savior, he taught us to love as he loves.
Love will drive fear away; it'll drive fear away.

When the people of Jesus felt scared and alone,
Someone wrote them a letter just to say
That our God is pure love: to know God is to love.
Love will drive fear away; it'll drive fear away.

Troubles keep coming our way.
But love, it'll drive fear away.
Our savior, he taught us to love as he loves.
Love will drive fear away; it'll drive fear away.
