As one of the greatest lyrical songs in all of hymnody, "The Love of God" stands apart from many. Frederick M. Lehman's hymn is astoundingly beautiful in its use of language and yet even with its amazing imagery it calls itself out for not being able to truly expound upon the vastness of God's love for us.
In this episode I explore the story and then get to talk about this hymn's powerful words and rich poetry with my brother, Matt Peavyhouse. He gives great insight into this hymn and its picturesque presentation of the gospel to each of us. I had a great time getting to sit and talk with him and I hope you'll enjoy it too! As always, thanks for listening.
