Here is Love Hymn Lyrics and Chords

Here Is Love hymn lyrics and Chords. Written by William Rees (1802-1883), Matt Giles, and Vell Rives, the song tells of God’s vast love, like a flood when Jesus’ blood was shed for us.

Here Is Love is a Welsh hymn associated with the Welsh revival of 1904. The revival lasted about a year. It was rather dramatic in Wales and swept across the rest of Britain, other parts of Europe, North American, India, Africa and Latin America.

It is interesting how a search for a classic hymn can lead to a discovery about a revival in Wales in 1904 and the man who started the revival, Evan Roberts. It is a fascinating piece of church history. To know more, try reading of these books:

Here is Love Hymn Lyrics

Lyrics by William Rees, Matt Giles, and Vell Rives and Music by Robert Lowry.

Here is love, vast as the ocean
Lovingkindness as the flood
When the Prince of life, our ransom
Shed for us His precious blood

Who His love will not remember
Who can cease to sing His praise
He can never be forgotten
Throughout heaven's eternal days

On the mount of crucifixion
Fountains opened deep and wide
Through the floodgates of God's mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide

Grace and love, like mighty rivers
Poured incessant from above
And heaven's pace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love
