AWESOME Gospel music! You Can't Measure God's Love - The Canton Spirituals

Video embedded below commentary

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Job+11%3A7-9&version=NIV

Hi!

I spent a lot of time yesterday looking for a great song to post here—and after a lot of fruitless searching I gave up.

Later in the evening I opened a "video" folder on my computer and saw an mp3 of the song I'll post today.

I didn't remember it—but when I gave it a spin then—I immediately knew I'd found what I was looking for!

(Jesus said, "Seek and you will find...." Matthew 7:7

: )

You Can't Measure God's Love by Harvey "Pop" Watkins Sr and the The Canton Spirituals, is  a wonderful testimony of the story of Jesus laying His life down on the cross—and the Power of Him rising again—and the wonderful Mercy and Grace He purchased by His death and resurrection!

Although they are fairly simple—I've transcribed the lyrics and added them below the video—so if you'd like you can follow or sing along.

I pray this song Blesses you and reminds you of the wonderful Grace and Mercy we can find through faith in Jesus.

You can't measure God's Love - Lyrics

You can't measure God's Love,

He left His home in Glory,
And He came here, and He died, Y'all,

He died for the sin, sick and the lost,
Jesus! Jesus paid the cost!

(That's why I tell y'all that)

You can't measure God's Love,

(Some of y'all don't know what I'm singing about)

They led Him, From hall to hall,
And they led Him up Calvary's Hill,
And they hung Him, (didn't they do that)
Out on the rugged cross,
He just died there for the sin, sick and the lost,

(That's why I tell y'all that)

You can't measure God's Love,

(I don't want to sing it too long)

(This is what they did)

They took Him down from the cross,
And they laid Him, (Didn't they do that, y'all)
Down in Joseph's new tomb, (Listen y'all, I'm glad of this)
Right on a Sunday mornin', He got up,
I say He got up, Somebody say I know He got up,
Jesus got up, Oh, He got up, Y'all
Jesus got up, Jesus got up, Jesus got up, < repeats

I want to tell you what He did when He got up

He said all Power is right here in my hand,
He could speak, and man would lay down and die,
He could speak, And the same man will live again,
(Y'all don't hear me but...)

I know, (He got up) < repeats

You can't measure God's Love

Softly And Tenderly - Hugh P & Maria

Hi!

I hope you are having wonderful Sunday!

-----------------------------

According to the website Timeless Truths, the old hymn Softly and Tenderly was first published in 1880—but like so many of those old hymns—there is a gentle truth that clearly resonates from it.

This version (as found in the video below) is by a father and daughter duo, Hugh P. and Maria Doherty, from Donegal, Ireland.

Maria is a beautiful young woman and sings with a soft, but powerful spirit—with a lovely wisp of an Irish brogue—and is accompanied by her awesome Da' on guitar and vocal harmonies.

It's my prayer that you will be Blessed by their music and feel the Lord Jesus gently calling you to turn to him!

The lyrics are posted just below the video.




Softly And Tenderly - Lyrics

    Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
    Calling for you and for me;
    See, on the portals, He’s waiting and watching,
    Watching for you and for me.

        Come home, come home,
       You who are weary, come home;
        Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
        Calling, O sinner, come home!

    Oh, for the wonderful love He has promised,
    Promised for you and for me!
    Though we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon,
    Pardon for you and for me.
