The Love of God

I just got back from beautiful beaches in Thailand and Indonesia (more on that in a post to come), and every time I sit on the beach and stare at the stunning majesty of the ocean I think of these lyrics.

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.

Oh, love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure—
The saints’ and angels’ song.
