If Human Hearts, How Much More (song lyrics by John Gowans)

One of my favorite song lyrics,“If Human Hearts” sometimes called “How Much More”, written by John Gowans:

Verse 1.
If human hearts are often tender,
And human minds can pity know,
If human love is touched with splendor,
And human hands compassion show,
(Chorus)
Then how much more shall God our Father
In love forgive, in love forgive!
Then how much more shall God our Father
Our wants supply, and none deny!

Verse 2.
If sometimes men can live for others,
And sometimes give where gifts are spurned,
If sometimes treat their foes as brothers,
And love where love is not returned,

Then how much more shall God our Father
In love forgive, in love forgive!
Then how much more shall God our Father
Our wants supply, and none deny!

Verse 3. If men will often share their gladness,

If men respond when children cry,
If men can feel each other’s sadness,
Each other’s tears attempt to dry,

Chorus
Then how much more shall God our Father
In love forgive, in love forgive!
Then how much more shall God our Father
Our wants supply, and none deny!

-written by John Gowans.
