The Love of God

The love of God is greater far
Than any tongue or pen can ever tell.
It goes beyond the highest star
And reaches to the lowest Hell.
The guilty pair
Bowed down with care
God gave his Son to win.
His erring child
He reconciled
And pardoned from His sin.

O Love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forever more endure
The saints' and angels' song!

When years of time shall pass away
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall
When men who here refuse to pray
On rocks and hills and mountains call
God's love so sure
Will still endure
All measureless and strong.
Redeeming grace
To Adam's race.
The saints' and angels' song!


Could we with ink the ocean fill
And were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on Earth a quill
And every man a scribe by trade
To write the love
Of God above
Would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll
Contain the whole
Though stretched from sky to sky
