126. The Love Of God

C                   G       C 
The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell; 
G        C 
It goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest hell.F              C           G   C 
The guilty pair, bowed down with care, God gave His Son to win; 
F       C            G    C 
His erring child He reconciled, and pardoned from his sin.
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
G     CHow measureless and strong! 
It shall forever more endure--
G    CThe saints and angels' song.
When hoary time shall pass away, 
and earthly thrones and kingdoms fall; 
When men who here refuse to pray, 
on rocks and hill and mountains call; 
God's love, so sure, shall still endure, all measureless and strong; 
Redeeming grace to Adams race the saints' and angels' song.
Could we with ink the ocean fill, 
and were the skies of parchment made; 
Were ev'ry stalk on earth a quill, and ev'ry man a scribe by trade; 
To write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry; 
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, 
through stretched from sky to sky.
