The LORD appreared to me in ages past, saying, "I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with love and kindness I have drawn you."
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.
When years of 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.
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 the God above would drain the ocean dry; nor could the scroll contain the whole, tho’ stretched from sky to sky.
O love of God, how rich and pure! How measureless and strong! It shall forevermore endure- the saints’ and angels’ song!
Fredrick Martin Lehman was born on August 7, 1868, in Mecklenburg, Schwerin, Germany, to Carl and Friederike Lehman. When Fredrick was 4, his parents emigrated to Iowa, where he lived for much of his life until he went to college. He came to Christ at the age of 11. He went to Northwestern Theological College and Seminary located in Naperville, IL. Fredrick served in ministries in Audubon, IA, and New London, IN. He took the position of pastor at a church in Kingsley, IA, where he wrote his first song, in 1898. In 1911, he moved and pastored in Kansas City, MO, and helped establish the Nazarene Publishing House. Lehman wrote and published hundreds of songs and compiled 5 songbooks. One Sunday night, after hearing a powerful sermon on the love of God, he pondered the love of God and eventually fell asleep. Fredrick woke up the next morning, drove to the publishing house, and in his office wrote the lyrics to “The Love of God”, went home, sat at his piano and arranged the lyrics to a complementary melody. The most memorable lines in the hymn, however, were not Lehman’s, but words found chiseled/written on the wall of a prison inmate/insane asylum patient (depending on the source) about 200 years prior. The lyrics were a translation of an old Aramaic poem about 1,000 years old. Fredrick married Emma Louise on January 3, 1891, and they had 9 children (3 sons and 6 daughters). Fredrick passed away on February 20, 1953 at the age of 84 in Pasadena, CA.
