His Love Supreme


His Love Supreme

The love of friend is great indeed,
It cheers our lonely hearts;
But never can it be compared
With love that Christ imparts.

The love of mother is so warm,
So kind and gentle too;
But love of Jesus far transcends–
‘Tis measureless and true.

The love of father is so strong;
It works, and sweats, and prays;
But Jesus’ love is greater far–
‘Tis like a fire ablaze.

The love of daughter and of son
Can capture heart and mind;
But love of Jesus is supreme,
No greater love I’ll find. 

The love of husband faithfully shines,
The love of wife is pure;
But Jesus’ love will never end
And ever will endure.

The love of brother in the faith
And sister in the Lord
Can not compare with love of Christ,
He is my Friend adored.

How can my tongue express my praise
Of Jesus’ love for me. . .
It overflows His heart to mine–
So rich and full and free.

No human love can meet my needs,
For man cannot bestow
The love displayed at Calvary
Which Jesus longs to show.

This love of Christ will never end
As we abide in Him;
‘Tis like a light that shines so bright
That never will grow dim.

It floods my soul with joy divine,
It shows the Father’s heart,
For God’s own love is found in Christ
And is not found apart.

Richard Hollerman

“. . . so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith;
and that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
may be able to comprehend with all the saints
what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge,
that you may be filled up to all the fulness of God.”

(Ephesians 3:17-19)

Nothing “shall be able to separate us from
the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
(Romans 8:39)
