The love of God is greater far

1
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.
2
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.
3
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.

I'll be trusting God to give the next stanza to this poem that expresses God's in an unimaginable way. God bless the writer.

The love of God! So rich and pure. Heard Bill Gaither sing this recently on a YouTube clip and I was hooked. Started looking for the verses and here we are.

I grew up in Pasadena and went to the same church that "Brother" Lehman attended. (Assembly of God) His daughter was one of my Sunday School teachers. This was in the '30 so Fred was well up in years but he and his wife sang this song as a duet and I shall never forget it. They put so much feeling into it.

When using this song for mediation and prayer, it was inspiring to see so many others had been touched by Christ's love. For over 2000 years the Holy Spirit has testified of God's love and it's marvelous in it's grace and power. To Him be all the glory!
