Greater Love Lyrics
Hosea looked upon his wife as she sold herself to sin.
Having left her home and husband in pursuit of certain end.
Now she'd stepped into a harlot's role to satisfy the flesh,
While Hosea watched the saddening scene, his heart filled with distress.
But although she had forsaken him, God granted him compassion.
So he bought her back, forgave her acts, a humble, loving action.
What could cause someone to offer up so great a love as this?
Only the love of God as it heals the hearts of humans, such as His.
There is a greater love, that transcends the powers of men.
There is a greater love, this world can't comprehend.
A love that completes, a love that forgives
There is a greater love, that can overcome all wrong.
There is a greater love, that's as wide as it is long.
It looks o'er the past, and reaches within,
There is a greater love than even the greatest sin.
The soldier looked at Jesus Christ as He suffered on the cross.
Having crucified the Son of God, he pondered what he saw.
Not a man whose love depended on the acts of other men,
But the one who gave His all for us despite our greatest sin.
My Jesus, I love Thee.
I know Thou art mine;
For Thee, all the follies of sin I resign;
My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou;
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus 'tis now.
