The love of God is greater far

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.
  O love of God, how rich and pure!
  How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore 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.

What a picture of God’s sovereignty as we watch and listen to His word from our homes during the shelter in place due to the spread of Coronavirus-19. Nothing of this physical world can stand against the love and power of the Lord which is beyond our wildest imagination. Praise be to God!

Just finish watching the movie INDESCRIBABLE and moved me to search for the lyrics of this song and I know deep within it means a lot.


Black River, St Elizabeth, Jamaica

I just woke up at 1am. with this song in my Spirit:

Oh love of God so rich and pure,

So measureless and strong,

It shall forevermore endure,

The saints and angels song

This shall be my prayer.

This piece of music is breathtaking! And the lyrics, oh my! If it is so sweet this side of heaven, how much more will it be in heaven? May God grant that I reach heaven, just to savor the blissful music that I know will be there...

The wonder of God's Love to mankind is measureless indeed... I thoughtfully sing this song often and get "LOST IN HIS LOVE"

I remember singing this tune in the services of the church of the Nazarene church where I was raised in the 50’s and 60’s ! I knew every little of spiritual things than but I was always up at the alter at every revival meeting etc.

I remember the song and melody, even now and at 72 years old I have more understanding from the Lord and as I read the lyric today it took me to

JOHN 3:16 . For God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not parish but have Everlasting Life !
