The Love of God

The love of God is greater far,
than tongue or pen can ever tell
It goes beyond the highest star,
and reaches to the lowest hell
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,
God gave His only Son to win
His erring child He reconciled,
you and I pardoned from our sin.

Oh, love of God, how rich and pure,
it shall forevermore endure
How measureless and strong
The saints’ and angels’ song we sing “Holy! Holy!” 

When ancient time shall pass away,
and earthly thrones and kingdoms fall
When men here refuse to pray,
and on rocks, hills and mountains call
God’s love so sure, will still endure,
all measureless and strong
“Redeeming grace to Adam’s race”
shall be the saints’ and angels’ song.

Could we with ink the ocean fill,
and were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
and every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above,
would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
though stretched from sky to sky. 

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
