18 may be strengthened to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and height and depth, 19 and to know Christ’s love which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Ephesians 3:18-19 WEB

37 No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from God’s love which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Love Magnificent Lyrics

A million stars illuminate the skies
As shepherds watched their flock of sheep by night
Bethlehem of old, a prophecy foretold
There God’s incarnate Word took on flesh
A multitude of heavenly host praised God of heaven and earth
For unto us is born, the Saviour of the world

Love, magnificent love
Jesus, You came, You dwelled with us
Everlasting God and King
Yet You gave Your everything
No other worthy of outstanding praise

Love, magnificent love
Jesus, You said, peace be on earth
Star of hope and majesty
Yet You came to set me free
I love because You first loved me

Darkness fell across the barren plain
As heaven watched, the Son gave up His strength
The innocent became, the Lamb who took my shame
No greater love than this for you and me

Lord, lead me to realise the depth, width
Height and greatness of Your magnificent love
Fill my heart with Your love, O Lord

Love, magnificent love
Jesus, You came, You dwelled with us
Everlasting God and King, yet You gave Your everything
No other worthy of outstanding praise

Love, magnificent love
Jesus, You said, peace be on earth
Star of hope and majesty, yet You came to set me free
I love because You first loved me
I love because You first loved me

A pre-recording of this song was offered as a free download a week or two before Christmas. The interesting bit about this recording is that there are slight differences in the lyrics. There was also a short prayer. Original lyrics posted here.

Can you spot the differences? 😉

A million stars illuminate the skies
As shepherds watched their flock of sheep by night
Bethlehem of old, a prophecy fulfilled
There God’s incarnate Word took on flesh

A multitude of heavenly host praised God of heaven and earth
For unto us is born, the Saviour of the world

Love, magnificent love
Jesus, You came, You dwelled with us
Everlasting God and King
Yet You gave Your life for me
No other worthy of outstanding praise

Love, magnificent love
Jesus, You said, peace be on earth
Let me be your hands and feet
Living out my destiny
I love because You first loved me

Darkness fell across the barren plain
As heaven watched, the Son gave up His strength
The innocent became, the Lamb who took my shame
No greater love than this for you and me

Prayer: Lord, may we be able to comprehend the width, length, depth and height of your magnificent love and be filled with all your fullness, Amen. 

Love, magnificent love

Everlasting God mighty King, yet You gave Your life for me
No other worthy of outstanding praise

Let me be your hands and feet
Living out my destiny
I love because You first loved me
