Today's Hymn: O Love Divine, How Sweet Thou Art

O Love Divine How Sweet Thou Art

O love divine, how sweet thou art!
When shall I find my longing heart
   all taken up by thee?
I thirst, I faint and die to prove
the greatness of redeeming love,
   the love of Christ to me.

Stronger His love than death or hell;
its riches are unsearchable:
   the first-born sons of light
desire in vain its depth to see;
they cannot reach the mystery:
   the length and breadth and height.

God only knows the love of God;
O that it now were shed abroad
   in this poor stony heart!
For love I sigh, for love I pine;
this only portion, Lord, be mine,
   be mine this better part.

For ever I would take my seat
with Mary at the Master’s feet:
   be this my happy choice;
my only care, delight, and bliss,
my joy, my heaven on earth, be this,
   to hear the Bridegroom’s voice.

-Charles Wesley
