[V1]
D                         Bm
 The love of God is greater far
               A             D
 Than tongue or pen can ever tell; ||
                           Bm
 It goes beyond the highest star,
            A               D
 And reaches to the lowest hell;||
           G                      D
 The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
             A        D
 God gave His Son to win;||
           G              D
 His erring child He reconciled,
             A          D
 And pardoned from his sin.
 G  Bm  A 
 
 
[V2]
 
           D                Bm
 When years of time shall pass away,
            Asus                 D
 And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,||
                            Bm
 When men who here refuse to pray,
             A                  D
 On rocks and hills and mountains call,||
              G                   D
 God's love so sure, shall still endure,
         A               D
 All measureless and strong;||
          G               D
 Redeeming grace to Adam's race—
               A          D
 The saints' and angels' song.
 
 
[C]
            G                    D
 Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
   A                  D
 How measureless and strong! ||
                       G            
 It shall forevermore endure—
                A        D
 The saints' and angels' song.
 
 
[V3]
              D             Bm
 Could we with ink the ocean fill,
             Asus4              D
 And were the skies of parchment made, ||
            D                Bm
 Were every stalk on earth a quill,
          A                D
 And every man a scribe by trade;||
              G            D
 To write the love of God above
                 A     D
 Would drain the ocean dry; ||
               G                  D
 Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
                      A      D
 Though stretched from sky to sky.
