The love of God is greater


    • 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. 

    • Oh, love of God, how rich and pure! 
    • How measureless and strong! 
    • It shall for evermore endure, 
    • the saints’ and angels’ song. 

    • 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. 

    • 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
