The Love of God  Misc. Gospel

The [D]love of God is greater far
Than tongue or [A7]pen can ever [D]tell;

It goes beyond the highest star,
And reaches [A7]to the lowest [D]hell;
The guilty [G]pair, bowed down with [D]care,
God gave His [A7]Son to [D]win;
His erring [G]child He recon[D]ciled,
And pardoned [A7]from his [D]sin.


Chorus:
[G]O love of God, how rich and [D]pure!
How measure[A7]less and [D]strong!
[G]It shall forevermore en[D]dure
The saints’ and [A7]angels’ [D]song.


When years of 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.

Chorus

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.
