O the deep, deep love of Jesus--Vast,
unmeasured, boundless free!
Rolling as a mighty ocean in its
fullness over me.
Underneath me, all around me, is
the current of His love--
Leading onward, leading homeward,
to my glorious rest above.
O the deep, deep love of Jesus--spread
His praise from shore to shore!
How He loveth, ever loveth, changeth
never, never more:
How He watches o'er His loved ones,
died to call them all His own;
How for them He intercedeth, watcheth
o'er them from the throne!
O the deep, deep love of Jesus--love
of ev'ry love the best!
'Tis an ocean vast of blessing,
'tis a haven sweet of rest.
O the deep, deep love of Jesus--'tis
a heaven of heav'ns to me;
And it lifts me up to glory, for
it lifts me, Lord, to Thee.
