No Greater Love

For all the loves of life
That tongue may dare to boast
The love of God exceeds the realm
Of thought’s meek uttermost

The hurts of life can press us
Prostrate on the ground
The Love of God will find us there
No greater love is found

He did not come to earth
To taste its finer side
A manger met Him at His birth
On lifted cross, He died

Thus, in life’s suffering
His faithful love attends
A kind and patient comforter
A close and constant Friend

In living’s high and low
Here on time’s season-sod
Hope lends its everlasting glow
Through this; the love of God

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. John 15:13, NKJV

My prayer is that we all may know His love.
