Never Ending Love



Nothing on this fallen earth
Creation has no personal worth
The longing of our hearts to feed
This world will never meet our deepest need.

We lack the strength to come and savor
The treasures whose worth never waivers
Nor their maximum worth to realize
Our desires are too small and we are too unwise

Joy unbound, Joy is found
In never ending Love
Joy abounds, Joy resounds
In never ending Love!

Our joys here come to an end.
Wood hay and stubble can't pretend
To persist for nothing here will last
Except the love that is infinitely vast

Our satisfaction is complete
When great grace and our great need meet
The love with which God loved the Son
And his love within us will become as one.

Joy unbound, Joy is found
In never ending Love
Joy abounds, Joy resounds
In never ending Love!

Bridge
If God’s delight in his Holy One
Becomes our pleasure in the Son,
With Christ the object of our pleasure.
He will become our priceless, boundless treasure!

Joy unbound, Joy is found
In never ending Love
Joy abounds, Joy resounds
In never ending Love!
Joy unbound, Joy is found
In never ending Love
Joy abounds, Joy resounds
In never ending Love!
