The Love of God


The love of CGod is greater far than tongue or Gpen can ever Ctell;

It goes beCyond the highest star, and reaches Gto the lowest Chell;

The guilty Fpair, bowed down with Ccare, God gave His G/BmSon to Cwin;

His erring Fchild He reconCciled, and pardoned G/Bmfrom his Csin.


O love of FGod, how rich and Cpure! How measureG/Bmless and Cstrong!

It shall forFevermore enCdure, the saints' and G/Bmangels' Csong.


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, shall 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.
