Verse 2 alternate lyrics by Evangel Bible Church of Berkeley.


The phrase "emptied Himself" by itself is correct in the sense that Christ emptied Himself of certain divine prerogatives or powers (Philippians 2:7) in His "kenosis" or His leaving His heavenly glory to take on human flesh in the incarnation.  This is different than the "becoming nothing" in certain songs (like Once Again or Your Love Is Amazing) or in the NIV, which is a poor translation of that verse.


However, "emptied Himself of all but love" is not technically correct because Christ didn't empty Himself of ALL divine prerogatives or powers EXCEPT love.  I think we all can sing the phrase without getting stumbled in this theological point, but it does fall short under closer and more technical scrutiny.



The Love of God

Key - C

Verse 1

The love of 
C
God is greater far
Than tongue or 
G
pen can ever 
C
tell;
It goes be
C
yond the highest star,
And reaches 
G
to the lowest 
C
hell;
The guilty 
F
pair, bowed down with 
C
care,
God gave His 
G
Son to 
C
win;
His erring 
F
child He recon
C
ciled,
And pardoned 
G
from his 
C
sin.

Refrain

O love of 
F
God, how rich and 
C
pure!
How measure
G
less and 
C
strong!
It shall for
F
evermore en
C
dure
The saints' and 
G
angels' 
C
song.

Verse 2

When years of 
C
time shall pass away,
And earthly 
G
thrones and kingdoms 
C
fall,
When men, who 
C
here refuse to pray,
On rocks and 
G
hills and mountains 
C
call,
God's love so 
F
sure, shall still en
C
dure,
All measure
G
less and 
C
strong;
Redeeming 
F
grace to Adam's 
C
race—
The saints' and 
G
angels' 
C
song.

Verse 3

Could we with 
C
ink the ocean fill,
And were the 
G
skies of parchment 
C
made,
Were every 
C
stalk on earth a quill,
And every 
G
man a scribe by 
C
trade,
To write the 
F
love of God a
C
bove,
Would drain the 
G
ocean 
C
dry.
Nor could the 
F
scroll contain the 
C
whole,
Though stretched from 
G
sky to 
C
sky.
