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.

Our Womens' Bible Study Fellowship group sang this yesterday. We have hundreds gathering every week from different ages and backgrounds. Many did not know this song. I thank you for your website as I am circulating this song to my discussion group. It fit perfectly with the text yesterday from John 13: Jesus loved them to the end! To hear the music with the lyrics is a special bonus.

Thank you for posting the lyrics and music to timeless hymns. Meaningful words like these you cannot find in today's music. I am excited about seeing the one we sing about very soon. Let's stay connected to Him so we can see Him as He is.

The Love of God is so very pure if only we could love the sinner as much as Christ did. If we did we would not stop tell others about Jesus. Help us to stand and love people like you do, Let us today tell someone about you Lord.

Thank You JESUS for loving me even when I have failed in my walk. This song helps us to know that we are not perfect. But GOD'S Love Is!

It is impossible for us to love each other unless we have truly experienced God's love.

The Love of God covers and sustains all His believers. It is deeper, greater, and richer than we have words for. If you have touched upon the Love of God you will never ever be the same. The Love of God is so sweet tender and true. And never forget the Love of God covers a multitude of sins. As far as the east is from the west is how far our sin has been removed from us.
