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.

Refrain: O Love of God, how rich and pure! How measure-less and strong! It shall forever-more endure The saintsí and angelís song.

2. 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,
Godís love so sure shall still endure, All measure-less and strong:
Redeeming grace to Adamís race The saintsí and angelís 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 Tho stretched from sky to sky.
