Oh, What A Love


(this song and this video will give you holy-hallelujah thrill-chills!)

The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof
Oh what a comfort to know
Whatever happens, His mercy and love
Cradles both wonder and woe

No might or merchant can usurp the One
Who was, Who IS and will be
Heaven and earth rest in ‘His will be done’
Provident Power is He

No creature care is too big or too small
To entrust to love’s scarred Hand
Whether we flourish or whether we fall
He is the One in command

Nothing unseen or mistaken by He
Who has nothing left to prove
Though He is oft misunderstood while we
Lap from His wellspring of love

Circumstance and consequence may afflict
Heartache and hurt test and try
Where footsteps fall in the halls of a gift
The Giver reasons the Why

For, the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof
All they who dwell therein
Comprise His uttermost language of love
Faithful Forgiver of sin

He is the Father who offered His Son
His Most Beloved, to be
The sacrifice for the wrongs we have done
His loss for our Victory

Though He is God since before Time began
He suffered Death, not in vain
We are the Reason His love had a plan
Where Heaven waits to explain
