The Love of God – Rich Mullins

If you have visited my site before then you know I love the music of Rich Mullins. He was an awesome songwriter. It just seems that everything we are experiencing today, as a country and as believers in Christ, he wrote a song about it twenty some years ago. I just find that so amazing. I would love to have sat in during his conversations with God. Here’s the You Tube link if anyone wants to hear it. The lyrics are beautiful!

The Love of God

Rich Mullins
Romans 8:18-39, Ephesians 3:14-21

There’s a wideness in God’s mercy
I cannot find in my own
And He keeps His fire burning
To melt this heart of stone
Keeps me aching with a yearning
Keeps me glad to have been caught
In the reckless raging fury
That they call the love of God

Now I’ve seen no band of angels
But I’ve heard the soldiers’ songs
Love hangs over them like a banner
Love within them leads them on
To the battle on the journey
And it’s never gonna stop
Ever widening their mercies
And the fury of His love

Oh the love of God
And oh, the love of God
The love of God

Joy and sorrow are this ocean
And in their every ebb and flow
Now the Lord a door has opened
That all Hell could never close
Here I’m tested and made worthy
Tossed about but lifted up
In the reckless raging fury
That they call the love of God
