This has always been a favorite of mine. I just cannot hear enough about the love of God and what it does in the life of the person who obeys the word of God.
The Love of God
words: Laurene Highfield (1916)
music: Samuel W. Beazley (1916)
v1 – Since the love of God has shed priceless blessings on my head,
I have made it my own.
I will hide it in my heart that it never may depart,
It shall rule there alone. Refrain
The love of God within the heart
Will kindliness and warmth impart.
The soul will glow like Jesus in his tender mercy
If the heart is made His dwelling place;
The love of God glows like a flame
Thru endless years it is the same.
The love of God will never fail nor lose its glory
Till we see Him face to face.
v2 – Since the Son of God came down with His love our lives to crown,
He with us would remain;
Greater love there could not be: Jesus died for you and me.
In our hearts, He would reign. Refrain
v3 – While His love burns true and bright, we are walking in the light,
He has shown us the road.
We His glory must reflect lest our dimness and neglect
Keep some soul from its God. Refrain
I John 5:3 – For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.
