The Love Of God

This song is by MercyMe and appears on the album Spoken For (2002).

This song is a cover of "The Love Of God" by Frederick Lehman.
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

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


O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
the saints' and angels' song
