The Love Of God

Rich Mullins

There's a wideness in God's mercy I cannot find in my own  
And He keeps His fire burning to melt this heart of stone
Keeps  me  aching with  a  yearning, keeps me glad to have been caught
In the wreckless  raging  fury that they call the love of God        
Now I've seen no band of angels but I've heard the soldier's songs
Love hangs over them like a banner, and with them love leads them on
To the battle on the journey, and it's never gonna stop
Every-widening their mercies and the fury of His love    
 Oh     the love of God           
And oh,    the love of God           
The love of God                               
Joy and sorrow are this ocean and in their every ebb and flow
Now the Lord a door has opened that all hell could never close
Here I'm tested and made worthy, tossed about but lifted up
In the wreckless raging fury that they call the love of God
