The Everlasting Love Of God from Matt Boswell and Matt Papa.
I was a bit surprised that I haven’t featured it anywhere before.
I like to think that’s because the songs are written in a way to encourage a sense of familiarity and make them easy to sing.
Not because they seem to be like their other previous songs.
The theme in this one is helpful in its focus linking present experience of God’s love and eternal security leading to a sense of peace and joy. There’s also an intentional trinitarian reference in the verses, which again emphasises how each person of the trinity all express the comprehensive love of God.

The lyrics:
1
How vast the everlasting love of God,
How sure and faithful as the morning.
This love so great for us could never fail
Nor end, for it had no beginning
Chorus
O, the everlasting love of God,
It shall ever be my song
So immense and free; more than life to me!
The everlasting love of God
2
How strong the Father’s beating heart for us,
What mercy runs to meet the sinner.
As rivers yearn to reach the lowest place,
His grace shall flow to me for ever.
Chorus
3
How great and precious my Redeemer’s blood,
How pure the passion of the Saviour.
My sins are drowned beneath this mighty flood,
My soul is swept away with wonder
Chorus
4
How deep the measure of the Spirit’s work
Who dwells in us, Who seals the promise
God’s love through time and all eternity
Shall stand and we shall stand upon it
What now could separate us from it
Final chorus
O, the everlasting love of God,
It shall ever be my song
So immense and free; more than life to me!
The everlasting love of God
The everlasting love of God.
