While this original post was a beautiful song by Hillsong Music, I can no longer recommend Hillsong due to their pastor, Brian Houston, asserting that back in the Old Testament that we and Muslims actually serve the same God. This is false teaching at its core. God is very clear on this matter:

Exodus 20:3-5 (ESV)

“You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me.”

The OT is filled with so many examples of what God thinks about other gods and certainly such a false connection to Him as being the same as Allah is heresy.

Many of their song lyrics are sound in their doctrine, but knowing where they come from …. I will leave it up to you. But I can no loner share or recommend their music.

Learned something really beautiful the other day. The Greek Verb ἀγαπῶντι (loves) is only used 1 time in the Bible … It is a present active participle Verb used when John wrote to the Churches in Asia —-

5 and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood.

The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2016). (Re 1:5). Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles.

In other words, Jesus loves us presently in the same way that he loved us at the moment on the Cross. He loves us today as He did yesterday. His love was not just something in the past. John MacArthur has a sermon on Revelation 1 and he pointed out that sometimes we go back in time to what that love must have been like, but in reality it is the same love today. His love is never ending. Now that is some BIG LOVE!
