The Love of God

Verse 1:


The love of God is greater far

               A            D

Than tongue or pen can ever tell


It goes beyond the highest star

            A             D

And reaches to the lowest hell

           G                     D

The guilty pair, bowed down with care

             A      D

God gave His Son to win

           G              Bm

His erring child, He reconciled

              A        D

And pardoned from his sin

Verse 2:

When hoary 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

Verse 3:

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

Oh love of God, how rich and pure

How measureless and strong

It shall forevermore endure

The saints’ and angels’ song
