O Love of God, Exalted High

“…so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:17-19

O love of God, exalted high,

Transcends the earth, the sea, the sky.

O Father now I bow my knee

Before your loving majesty.

All praise we render to the Son,

The Father, Spirit, Three-in-One.

 

According to your lavished grace,

Sweet Heav’nly Dove, my heart embrace;

Renewing life within my soul,

With fullness filled and love controlled.    

All praise to Jesus, Holy Son,

The Father, Spirit, Three-in-One.

 

O love of Christ, surpassing wide,

For wayward sinners prone to hide;   

Love’s reach extends to every land,

To every country, every clan.

All praise we render, gracious Son,

The Father, Spirit, Three-in-One.

 

Elect from love-forsaken tribes,

Their names upon His hand inscribed,           

Will with triumphant hosts above

Extol His wide-embracing love!

All praise we render to the Son,    

The Father, Spirit, Three-in-One.

 

The love of Jesus, broad and deep:

Through death’s dark valleys still He keeps   

And guards my heart against the foe,

Through depths of sorrow, loss, and woe.                             

All praise to Christ, eternal Son,

The Father, Spirit, Three-in-One.

 

O love of God, how vast and long!

No demon might or tyrant throng                 

Can snatch me from my Father’s hand

Or thwart His love-bought sovereign plan.

All praise to Christ, exalted Son,

The Father, Spirit, Three-in-One.
