It is time for our song of the week and we are featuring the only song we have recorded a cappella! This beautiful hymn has such amazing imagery and paints a wonderful picture of just how enormous God’s Love is! Frederick M. Lehman wrote the first two verses of the song, the chorus and the music. The last verse was actually discovered written on the walls of an insane asylum but the origin can actually be traced all the way back nearly 1,000 years ago to a Jewish poem titled Hadamut composed in 1096 by Rabbi Mayer in Worms, Germany. The hymn is one of our favorites and we pray that you will celebrate The Love Of God with us!
- Romans 5:6-8“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
