God's love is
beautiful like the springtime,
deep and wide as the sea,
mighty as an eagle,
His love cannot be beat.
His mercy surpasses mountains.
His love abounds eternally.
He sent His son to save us.
He died for you and me.
The Prince of Peace was crowned with thorns.
Our Savior was mocked and scorned.
Betrayed by His own for some coins.
To redeem us is why He was born.
Everlasting, kind, merciful and true
His arms are still wide open, waiting,
to embrace us sinners like me and you

There's no time to hesitate.
Your endeavor is just starting to begin.
