A song for you all.......

Posted by Picasa

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 guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled
And pardoned from his sin.O love of God, how rich and pure!

How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints' and angels' song.

2.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 saints' and angels' song.

3.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,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

They don't write songs quite like this anymore, do they? The word pictures are so incredible. Thanks for sharing; I love this song too.

I always like to think of words spread across the sky........and the sky might be dark and stormy....or bright and cloudless.
