The Love of God

God's Amazing Love!

Could we with ink the ocean fill,
Were every blade of grass a quill,
Were the world of parchment made,
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor would the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.

I heard this quoted in a sermon yesterday and scribbled down the title. Hoped I could find it again. Thank you for posting it. Love the full version David has quoted. Apparently it was adapted as a hymn. 😃

Dreams in the revelations of different shades of color, brings to the beauty of life what will never diminish the essence of Jade! As the color palettes of perfection signifies the momentum of our love for everyone, and so does God's perfect image of beauty, which looms in essence, of all who belong in the world, all perfect, all beautiful, and all because, we are!!!

Frederick M. Lehman wrote the song “The Love of God” song in 1917 in Pasadena, California, and it was published in Songs That Are Different, Volume 2, 1919. The lyrics are based on the Jewish poem Had¬da¬mut, written in Aramaic in 1050 by Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai, a cantor in Worms, Germany; they have been translated into at least 18 languages.

He writes: One day, during short intervals of inattention to our work, we picked up a scrap of paper and, seated upon an empty lemon box pushed against the wall, with a stub pencil, added the (first) two stanzas and chorus of the song…Since the lines (3rd stanza from the Jewish poem) had been found penciled on the wall of a patient’s room in an insane asylum after he had been carried to his grave, the general opinion was that this inmate had written the epic in moments of sanity.

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.
Refrain
O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song.
When years of 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.
Refrain
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.

This is the last verse of an old hymn:
Lyrics & Music by Frederick Martin Lehman (1868-1953)
Hope you are blessed entire song.

1The 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.
2When 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.
3Could 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.

It reminds me of some of the words in "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross", where it says "were the whole realm of nature mine, that were a present far too small". I love that hymn!

Thanks for that bit of background Conny, I hadn't heard about that before. Yes! I could imagine it bringing comfort to many sick people.

This song was written by Frederick Lehman (see Link). The text is from a Jewish poem, which was found in an insane asylum and had been written on the wall by one of the patients. The patient must have been comforted by the words of this song. And so it is still today... http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/l/o/loveofgo.htm
