GOD IS GREATER THAN OUR HEARTS

 

1 John 3:20

 

 

 

God is greater than our hearts

 

Greater than our fits and starts

 

All our sighing, crying, plying

 

Our longing, wronging, lying

 

His love is infinitely far beyond

 

The love within us He has spawned

 

Only this can I with confidence say

 

His love will win out one happy day

 

Indeed, it will one grace-filled day
