The truth of God is greater far

 

 

The truth of God is greater far

Than our poor human mind,

Than any doctrine, creed, or sect,

All partial and confined.

His treasures hold uncounted wealth

That hearts have never heard.

Our boundless God has yet more light

To shine out from His Word.

 

Who dares to limit God Himself

To what we understand,

To shrink His sprawling mystery

And hold it in our hand?

Immensity of purest love!

An ocean unexplored!

Our boundless God has yet more light

To shine out from His Word.

 

O Lord, Your Word is Jesus Christ,
Your truth in us begun,
But O the depths of all He is
And all that He has done!
Let faith and love each day increase
The hunger You have stirred:
May more and more of Christ our Light
Shine brightly from Your Word!
 

 

Words by Ken Bible and George Rawson (1807-1889)
