The Love of God | Frederick M. Lehman

The Love of God | Frederick M. Lehman

“The Love of God” This hymn is very inspiring. Be Blessed!

The love of God is greater far

Than tongue or pen can ever tell;

It goes beyond the farthest star,

And reaches to the deepest well.

It seeks to find each heart, to bind

In one earth’s numberless throng;

Each wandering child is reconciled,

And pardoned from all wrong.

 

When years of time shall pass away

And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,

When some who here still fear to pray,

On rocks and hills and mountains call,

God’s love so sure will still endure,

All measureless and strong;

Redeeming grace to every 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 everyone 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.

 

Were the sky of parchment made,

A quill each reed, each twig and blade,

Could we with ink the oceans fill,

Were every man a scribe of skill,

The marvelous story of God’s great glory

Would still remain untold;

For He, most high the earth and sky

Created alone of old.

 

 

Refrain

O love of God, how rich and pure!

How measureless and strong!

It shall forevermore endure,

The saints’ and angels’ song!

 

Refrain

O love of God, how rich and pure!

How measureless and strong!

It shall forevermore endure,

The saints’ and angels’ song!

 

Refrain

O love of God, how rich and pure!

How measureless and strong!

It shall forevermore endure,

The saints’ and angels’ song!

 

Refrain

O love of God, how rich and pure!

How measureless and strong!

It shall forevermore endure,

The saints’ and angels’ song!

Verse 3 was penciled on the wall of a narrow room in an American insane asylum by a man said to have been demented. The profound lines were discovered when they laid him in his coffin.
