The Love Of God

by Frederick M. Lehman
vs. 3 - Meir Ben Isaac Nehoral


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.

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 saint's and angel's 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,
Tho' stretched from sky to sky.

Chorus

Oh love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure,
The saint's and angels song.
