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'm teaching a study over the love of God and this small poem is part of a hymn. I'm going to copy this for the ladies and make a Love book if you will about God. Thank you for your help.

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
