Lyrics for above hymn

The love of God is greater far

Author: Frederick M. 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.

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.

Refrain


Please note:
The above recordings may not match your hymn-book lyrics exactly. This is because some tunes come in many versions (changed timings, additional notes, different harmonies etc). You are advised to check the various recordings to find the one that suits best your requirements.


You can use programs like Audacity and Song Surgeon to adjust the tempo, pitch and number of verses in the MP3 files.


If you feel the linked tune is the wrong tune (I could have made a mistake in creating the Hymn_Code), please e_mail me with the details (Hymnbook name, and hymn number, and what you think is the problem).
