Quote from the Books Tuesday

"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.

O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure
The saints’ and angels’ song."
-From the hymn The Love of God.

That quote is a favorite of mine! I've heard my dad use it before in his preaching. Thanks for sharing, Hannah!
