  • Sing the second line and ask participants to repeat the line.
  • Sing the first and second line together and ask participants to repeat the line.
  • Sing the third line and ask the participants to repeat the line.
  • Sing the fourth line and ask the participants to repeat the line.
  • Sing the first through fourth lines and ask participants to repeat.
  • Continue in the same manner for the second verse.
  • Sing the entire song.

Love surrounds us this I know

For my spirit tells me so

All of us to love belong

Fill our hearts and make us strong.

Yes, love surrounds us

Yes, love surrounds us.

Yes, love surrounds us,

My spirit tells me so.
