Love Conquers All

Hello Everyone! My first post for this new year and first of all I want to say thank you for all of you who follow me and leave me delightful comments of encouragement! You are a blessing to me!

Today I've created a card to share at Word Art Wednesday.  I saw this wonderful image by Bugaboo Stamps and it went totally along the lines of what I have been meditating on today.  With the new year beginning, I've been thinking about the greatest gift God has given me -Salvation through Jesus Christ the Lord.  This wonderful song written by Leman and Mayer has been coming to mind and I cannot but help to sing.

  1. 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 guilty pair, bowed down with care,
    God gave His Son to win;
    His erring child He reconciled,
    And pardoned from his sin.
    • Refrain:
      Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
      How measureless and strong!
      It shall forevermore endure—
      The saints’ and angels’ song.
  2. When hoary time shall pass away,
    And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
    When men who here refuse to pray,
    On rocks and hills and mountains call,
    God’s love so sure, shall still endure,
    All measureless and strong;
    Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—
    The saints’ and angels’ song.
  3. Could we with ink the ocean fill,
    And were the skies of parchment made,
    Were every stalk on earth a quill,
    And every man a scribe by trade;
    To write the love of God above
    Would drain the ocean dry;
    Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
    Though stretched from sky to sky. 
  4. I found the lyrics to this wonderful song on Timeless Truths.  It wasn't in the hymnbook that I have so I went online.  
  5. How incredible the Love of God is for us,
  6.  "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." -John 3:16-17 
  7. Love does conquer all!  Praise God!

Hi Jennifer! This card is so cute, and I always enjoy stopping by and having you play along with us. I hope you and your family are doing well. I'll bet it's cold where you are! White Christmas for sure, huh? I really missed that here this year for some reason (reminiscing, I guess).
Thanks for sharing, and have a blessed week!
