O love of God, how strong and true

O love of God, how strong and true,
eternal and yet ever new,
uncomprehended and unbought,
beyond all knowledge and all thought!

2. O heavenly love, how precious still,
in days of weariness and ill,
in nights of pain and helplessness,
to heal, to comfort and to bless!

3. O wide-embracing, wondrous love,
we see you in the sky above;
we see you in the earth below,
in seas that swell and streams that flow!

4. We see 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.

5. We see your power to bless and save
within the darkness of the grave;
still more in resurrection light
we see the fulness of your might.

6. O love of God, our shield and stay
through all the perils of the way;
eternal love, in you we rest,
for ever safe, for ever blessed!
