Sunday Hymn

"Here is Love"

Here is love vast as the ocean,
Lovingkindness as the flood,
When the Prince of life, our ransom,
Shed for us His precious blood.
Who His love will not remember?
Who can cease to sing His praise?
He can never be forgotten
Throughout heaven's eternal days.

On the mount of crucifixion,
Fountains opened deep and wide;
Through the floodgates of God's mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide.
Grace and love, like mighty rivers,
Poured incessant from above,
And heaven's peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love.

That same Love, beyond all measure
Mocked and slain by hateful men,
Lives and reigns in resurrection
And can never die again.
Here is Love for all the ages;
Radiant Sun of heaven He stands
Calling home His Father's children,
Holding forth His wounded hands.
