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.

This song always lifts my heart from the miry pit of despair. The truth of this song sets me free. My favorite part is the last part number 3 because of where and in what situation of suffering it was written.

Once again in preparation for tomorrow's Sermon, I turn, as I have so often to some of the greatest lyrics ever penned, This wonderful hymn reminds us of the timeless truth of God's love and describes it as no other has or ever could!

This song conveys the best explanation of God's Love I have ever come across.
