HERE IS LOVE

  Lyrics

Verse 1
Here is love vast as the ocean
Loving-kindness as the flood
When the Prince of life, our ransom
Shed for us his precious blood
Who his love will not remember
Who can cease to sing his praise
He can never be forgotten
Throughout heaven’s eternal days

Verse 2
On the mount of crucifixion
Fountains opened deep and wide
Through the floodgates of God’s mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide
Grace and love, like mighty rivers
Poured incessant from above
Heaven’s peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love

Verse 3
Let me, all your love accepting
Love you ever, all my days
Let me seek your kingdom only
And my life be to your praise
You alone shall be my glory
Nothing in the world I see
You have cleansed and sanctified me
Jesus, you have set me free

  Sample Introduction

The greatest love we know is the love that Christ had for us, demonstrated at the cross. A love that offers grace and mercy, a love that conquers evil, and a love as vast as the oceans. This song helps us to seek Christ’s kingdom only, as we see the great love he has for us, and the great love this should inspire in us as we respond in faith and obedience to him.
