Oh The Love Of God

 

Oh The Love Of God


"The theology in my head is often not a reality in my heart. My theology says I can’t earn God’s favor, but the reality is, I find myself trying to. Oh The Love Of God is a song about the finished work of Jesus. When I fall, I’m not falling out and trying to get back in. I’m falling inside of grace, and that grace is not just forgiving me, it is transforming me." (Cameron Walker)

VERSE 1
Our lips have lied a thousand times
You speak the truth and it sets us free
Our hearts still hide in fear and pride
You find us in fearless mercy

VERSE 2
We stumble and slander our lives away
You call us to love without limit
We constantly fail, our covenants break
Your kindness leads to repentance

CHORUS
Oh the love of God, how deep, how wide
Oh the love of God, how vast, how high

VERSE 3
Our hands have but idols of silver and gold
We've chased after riches while robbing our souls
We've begged like paupers and stolen like thieves
Forgotten that we are a kingdom of priests

BRIDGE
Thanks be to God, our redeemer
Whose mercy never ends
Once and for all, it is finished
He's crucified our sin
Thanks be to God, our redeemer
Who died and rose again
Who reigns forevermore
Now in his righteousness we stand

VERSE 4
If you kept a record of all of our sin
It would fill oceans again and again
But higher than heavens and deeper than seas
So great is the love of our merciful king
