Full Text

1 The love of God is broader than earth's vast expanse,
'Tis deeper and wider than the sea.
Love reaches out to all to bring abundant life,
For God so loved the world His only Son He gave.

Refrain:
Share His love by telling
what the Lord has done for you,
Share His love by sharing of your faith,
and show the world that Jesus Christ
is real to you ev'ry moment, ev'ry day.

2 All those who have trusted in God's only Son,
And hold this precious treasure in their hearts,
Seek ways to make it known To all who need to know
That God so loved the world His only Son He gave. [Refrain]

3 We show the love of God each day we live,
Reveal Christ's presence in our lives;
And how the Holy Spirit guides us day by day,
For God so loved the world His only Son He gave. [Refrain]
