old school is still awesome

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

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 whol

Though stretched from sky to sky

Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!

O love of God, how rich and pure!

How measureless and strong!

It shall forevermore endure

The saints’ and angels’ song

i’m going to bed thinking about this.  i think a revival of my favorite old hymns is in order … i’m going to try to look up a new one every day this week and meditate on it.  those old guys and gals knew what was up when they wrote these.
