The Love of God (Kevin)

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 forevermore endure—

the saints’ and angels’ song.

When ancient time shall pass away,

and human thrones and kingdoms fall;

when those who here refuse to pray

on rocks and hills and mountains call;

God’s love so sure, shall still endure,

all measureless and strong;

grace will resound the whole earth round—

the saints’ and angels’ song.

Oh love of God, how rich and pure!

How measureless and strong!

It shall forevermore endure—

the saints’ and angels’ song.

Could we with ink the ocean fill,

and were the skies of parchment made;

were ev’ry stalk on earth a quill,

and ev’ryone 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.
