I had this in ‘Draft’ a few weeks ago when I was reading that George Beverly Shea, faithful servant of God had celebrated his 104 birthday. With sadness today I heard that he passed on to receive his reward. My blogger friend Coming East wrote a nice post today.
George Beverly Shea was in ministry for 80 years, 60 years with the Billy Graham Crusades. He is the oldest international gospel singer whose music has blessed people world-wide. Someone said that he has blessed 220 million people with his worshipful songs. ‘The Love of God’ is one of my favorite songs.
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 quilty pair, bowed down with care
God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,
And pardoned from his sin.
O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song.
