SUCH LOVE

Such Love! Such wonderful Love is this!
Such peace! Such infinite peace is this!
Such joy! Abiding and deep is this!
The love of my Lord for me.
Such grace! Such marvelous grace is this!
Such Life!! Abundant and free is this!
Such hope! Such glorious hope is this-
That His face I'll see.

There are no words that fully can express
The matchless glory of His perfect
righteousness.
I stand amazed and still; my soul with
rapture thrills.
I long to do the will
Of Him Who loves me.

I'll follow Him, though I can ne'er repay
The price He paid to take my sin away.
His praise I'll sing each step of each
joyous day!
Such Love!
Such marvelous, fathomless, deep
and unsearchable love is this!

Such love-
Such love-
Such love is this!

Comments to SUCH LOVE

Here is where mere words fail utterly and completely. The most eloquent orator, the most expansive vocabulary are as a babe's beginning speech . We stand speechless as we search for the right words. Beautiful enough, expressive enough, exalting enough, worthy enough. How can we--certainly how can I with my limited ability, ever begin to describe the Love of God?

I clearly remember when I wrote this poem, when I was caught in the overwhelming tide of His mighty, unspeakable Love. i tried to set some words to rhyme and rhythm but could only begin to stammer and stutter as I realized what an impossible task it was.

He has given us His Word, His love letter to us , telling us over and over and over in unfathomable measure of His Love. FInally, He proved it as He hung on a rough cross on Golgotha's brow and poured out His blood in Love-drops for our sin.

Finally, defeated, I cease trying to find the words. I choose two familiar verses to serve as bookends for the volumes of His love.

One bookend is : "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16"

The other bookend is: "Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us that we should be called the children of God.. 1John 3:1"
