God's Limitless Love  

That ye...may be able to comprehend...what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge...Ephesians 3:17-19.

“O love of God, how strong and true! Eternal and yet ever new;
Uncomprehended and unbought, Beyond all knowledge and all thought.

O love of God, how deep and great! Far deeper than man’s deepest hate;
Self-fed, self-kindled like the light, Changeless, eternal, infinite.

O heav’nly love, how precious still, In days of weariness and ill,
In nights of pain and helplessness, To heal, to comfort, and to bless!

O wide embracing, wondrous love! We read thee in the sky above,
We read thee in the earth below, In seas that swell, and streams that flow.

We read thee best in him who came To bear for us the cross of shame;
Sent by the Father from on high, Our life to live, our death to die. Amen.

We read thy power to bless and save, e’en in the darkness of the grave;
Still more in resurrection light We read the fullness of thy might.

O love of God, our shield and stay Through all the perils of our way!
Eternal love, in thee we rest, for ever safe, for ever blest.”

-From a hymn by Horatius Bonar, 1861
