1 O love of God, how strong and true,
eternal and yet ever new,
uncomprehended and unbought,
beyond all knowledge and all thought!
2 O wide-embracing, wondrous love,
We read you in the sky above,
we read you in the earth below,
in seas that swell and streams that flow.
3 We read you 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.
4 We read your power to bless and save
ev'n in the darkness of the grave;
still more in resurrection light
we read the fullness of your might.
5 O love of God, our shield and stay
through all the perils of our way;
eternal love, in you we rest,
for ever safe, for ever blest.
