The Love of God

Today while reading the blogs of our friends, I discovered that someone had posted the words to one of my favorite hymns.  We sing it a lot at Bible Study (which his father leads) and I always enjoy it.  (Maybe we could sing it this week.. hint, hint!)  Anyway, I always forget what it's called and a lot of the words.  I always tell myself "email the T. family and ask them for the words", but I always forget to do that!

Anyway, this hymn always makes me really want to sing!  I love these words.  They are so sweet, simple, and powerful all at the same time.  I love to memorize hymns.  I just finished Redeemed, How I Love to Proclaim It.  I LOVE that one too!!!! :)

So, without further ado... I present the post that I stole from  Christopher T.  Stop by his blog and let him know you like it!


The love of God is greater far
Than 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.

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.

O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song.
