Skies of Paper and Oceans of Ink
"But God, Who is rich in mercy, for His great love
wherewith He loved us,
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together
with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together
in heavenly places in Christ Jesus."
Hello there! Hope you're having a great week!
For today's post, I wanted to simply share the incredible words penned by F. M. Lehman about the breathtaking greatness of God's love! I love the line that says, "Could we with ink, the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made...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!"
Wow. THAT, MY FRIENDS, IS THE GREATNESS OF GOD'S LOVE!!!! It's MAGNITUDE is unsearchable and we will be continually discovering more and more of it for eternity!
The Love of God
by F.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.
O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall for evermore endure
The saints and angel's song.
When years of time shall pass away,
And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men, who here refuse to pray,
On rocks and hill and mountains call,
God's love so sure, shall still endure,
All measureless and strong;
Redeeming grace to Adam's race-
The saint's and angel's song.
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."
Just take a moment and soak that truth in! THAT love is yours! He loves to love you!
Blessings today to know the love of God measureless and strong FOR YOU! :)
