No Greater Love

No Greater Love

The earth in my hands
I find You present
Here in ashes to ashes
And dust to dust.

For no greater Love
Hath He who
Lays down our lives
For His Body.

No longer a bitter pill
But in Your yielding
Sweet consolations
We're tasting and seeing.

Ashes to ashes
And dust to dust
Bequeaths but
Our portion eternal.

A city of God
In streams of mercy
Here flowing
All loss is but gain.

A greater yield
In each ploughing
You're reaping
Your Bride preparing

Spotless and blameless
Your Kingdom's coming
On earth
As it is in heaven.
