HYMNAL: The Love of God

Author: Frederick M. Lehman


1 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 wand'ring child is reconciled

by God's beloved Son.

The aching soul again made whole,

and priceless pardon won.



O love of God, how rich and pure!

How measureless and strong!

It shall forevermore endure—

the saints’ and angels’ song.


2 When ancient time shall pass away,

and human thrones and kingdoms fall;

when those who here refuse to pray

on rocks and hills and mountains call;

God’s love so sure, shall still endure,

all measureless and strong;

grace will resound the whole earth round—

the saints’ and angels’ song. [Refrain]


3 Could we with ink the ocean fill,

and were the skies of parchment made;

were ev’ry stalk on earth a quill,

and ev’ryone 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. [Refrain]
