O Love Divine, How Sweet Thou Art – Hymn Lyric

O love divine, how sweet thou art!
When shall I find my willing heart
All taken up by thee?
I thirst, I faint, I die to prove
The greatness of redeeming love,
The love of Christ to me.

Stronger His love than death or hell;
Its reaches are unsearchable;
The first born sons of light
Desire in vain its depths to see;
They cannot reach the mystery
The length, and breadth, and height.

God only knows the love of God;
O that it now were shed abroad
In this poor stony heart!
For love I sigh, for love I pine;
This only portion, Lord, be mine,
Be mine this better part.

O that I could forever sit
With Mary at the Master’s feet;
Be this my happy choice;
My only care, delight, and bliss,
My joy, my heaven on earth, be this
To hear the Bridegroom’s voice.

O that, with humbled Peter, I
Could weep, believe, and thrice reply,
My faithfulness to prove.
Thou know’st, (for all to Thee is known,
Thou know’st, O Lord, and Thou alone,
Thou know’st that Thee I love.

O that I could, with favored John,
Recline my weary head upon
The dear Redeemer’s breast!
From care, and sin, and sorrow free,
Give me, O Lord, to find in Thee
My everlasting rest.

Thy only love do I require,
Nothing on earth beneath desire,
Nothing in heaven above;
Let earth, and heaven, and all things go,
Give me Thy only love to know,
Give me only Thy love.

   

Meaning of O Love Divine, How Sweet Thou Art

O Love Divine, How Sweet Thou Art!

When I read these words, I can’t help but feel a warmth and joy deep within my heart. It’s like a melody resonating in my soul, reminding me of the incredible love of God.

Love divine is not like any ordinary love. It is a love that is beyond measure, a love that knows no bounds. The hymn speaks of how this love is sweeter than anything we could ever imagine. It is a love that captivates our hearts and fills us with a thirst for more.

The hymn goes on to say that this love is stronger than death or hell. It’s a love that is unsearchable, that even the angels in heaven long to understand. Its depth and breadth are beyond human comprehension. Only God himself knows the full extent of his love.

As I reflect on these words, I can’t help but long for this love to be poured out in my own heart. I yearn for a love that surpasses all others, a love that transforms me from the inside out. I want to thirst for this love, to long for it as if my very life depends on it.

The hymn suggests that this love is the only thing that truly matters. It should be our greatest desire, our sole focus. Everything else in this world pales in comparison to the love of God. It should be our joy, our heaven on earth.

Like Mary sitting at the Master’s feet, I want to choose this love above all else. I want it to be my only care, my greatest delight, my ultimate source of bliss. I want to hear the voice of the Bridegroom, speaking words of love and affirmation.

I am reminded of Peter, who wept at his own shortcomings, yet had unwavering faith in God’s love. Oh, how I wish I could be like Peter, believing without a doubt in the faithfulness of God. I want to prove my love to him, to show him that I am dedicated and devoted to his incredible love.

And just as John rested his weary head upon the dear Redeemer’s breast, I too long for that rest. I desire a place of freedom from care, sin, and sorrow. I want to find my everlasting rest in God’s loving arms.

In the end, all I truly desire is to know God’s love and to be known by him. I don’t need anything else on this earth or in heaven above. I am willing to let go of everything else if it means I can fully experience the depths of God’s love.

So, I pray, “O Love Divine, How Sweet Thou Art! Fill me with your love, Lord. Pour it out abundantly in my heart. Let it be the driving force in my life. Let me know the depths of your love and let it be the only thing that truly matters. O Love Divine, How Sweet Thou Art!”
