The Love of God Chords
from "Hymns of the Spirit"
(Capo 3)

Introx2/Interludes:   C    F    C    G    C   


                     C          F            C

The love of God is greater far

                             G                     C

Than tongue or pen can ever tell,

                  C               F           C

It goes beyond the highest star,

                       G                      C

And reaches to the lowest hell;

                   F                                        C

The guilty pair, bowed down with care,

                         G          C         

God gave His Son to win;

                   F                        C

His erring child He reconciled,

                           G              C       

And pardoned from his sin.



                        C                 F        C

When mortal time shall pass away,

                      G                                       C

And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall;

                              C           F            C

When men who here refuse to pray,

                         G                                  C

On rocks and hills and mountains call;

                          F                             C

God’s love, so sure, shall still endure,

                      G               C

All measureless and strong;

                       F                           C

Redeeming grace to Adam’s race

                              G           C

The saints’ and angels’ song.



                         F                               C

     Oh love of God, how rich and pure

                              G              C      

     How measureless and strong

                         F                    C

     It shall forevermore endure,

                                  G            C      

     The saints’ and angels’ song.


                           C            F        C

Could we with ink the ocean fill,

                          G                                 C

And were the skies of parchment made,

                     C              F            C

Were every stalk on earth a quill

                    G                          C

And every man a scribe by trade;

                       F                      C

To write the love of God above

                               G         C

Would drain the ocean dry;

                          F                               C

Nor could the scroll contain the whole,

                                     G          C

Tho' stretched from sky to sky.
