Overwhelming Love

God’s love for us is overwhelming, relentless, abiding, and perfect.

His love is unconditional,

like the absolute of time.

There is no ocean wide enough,

no mountain He won’t climb.

To gather up His people,

to keep them safe from harm.

To wrap them in the safety,

and the power of His arms.

This world may throw up barriers,

to separate from Him.

As evil seeks to expand its hold

in a battle it won’t win.

His love is unconditional,

like the absolute of time.

There is no ocean wide enough,

no mountain He won’t climb.

He calls out to His children,

seeks each one by name,

to fulfill the eternal promise

for which His Son’s own life He gave.

He waits patiently with mercy,

His earthly work undone,

until all those who seek His grace,

stand beside Him at His throne.

Overwhelming is His love for us,

His mercy never sleeps.

Eternal is His promise,

and the vigil that He keeps.

He is the way, the truth, the life,

poured forth in abundant grace.

He will not rest until all who trust,

are reunited face to face.

Returned once more to the fullness,

of the life from which we came,

the Father, Son, and Spirit,

abiding love that never ends.
