The Love of God (Jon)

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 years time shall pass away

And earthly 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

Redeeming grace to Adam's race

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.
