1. O wide, embracing, wondrous love,
Eternal and yet ever new,
Uncomprehended and unbought,
Beyond all knowledge and all through.

2. We read you in the flowers, the trees,
The freshness of the fragrant breeze,
The songs of birds upon the wing,
The joy of summer and of spring.

3. We read you best in him who came
And bore for us the cross of shame,
Sent by the Father from on high,
Our life to live, our death to die.

4. The love of God will ever stay
Through all the dangers of our way;
Eternal love in you we rest,
Forever safe, forever blest.
