How Great the Love

 
How Great the Love

The love of God, how great it is,
so marvelous and pure!
It never falters, never fails;
it always will endure.
It reaches higher than the heavens,
deeper than the sea.
God’s love surrounds His whole creation –-
how He cares for me!
 
This love we could never hope to earn
because of our own merit,
But as children of God, through our dear brother Christ,
we become free to inherit.
Nothing can separate us from God’s love
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
We are precious to Him, so dearly beloved,
ever cherished and adored.
