O The Deep Deep Love Of Jesus.
Samuel Trevor Francis (1875), Welsh melody adapted by Thomas John Williams (1890).
1. 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 Thy love
Leading onward, leading homeward
To Thy glorious rest above!
2. O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Spread His praise from shore to shore!
How He loveth, ever loveth,
Changeth never, nevermore!
How He watches oâ€™er His loved ones,
Died to call them all His own;
How for them He intercedeth,
Watcheth oâ€™er them from the throne!
3. O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Love of every love the best!
â€™Tis an ocean vast of blessing,
â€™Tis a haven sweet of rest!
O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
â€™Tis a heaven of heavens to me;
And it lifts me up to glory,
For it lifts me up to Thee!
