O the deep, deep love...

DSC01201













O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free!
Rolling as a mighty ocean
In it’s fullness over me,
Underneath me, all around me,
Is the current of thy 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, watch-eth o’er them from the throne.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Love of every love the best!
‘Tis an ocean vast of blessing,
‘Tis a haven sweet of rest,
O, the deep, deep love of Jesus,
‘Tis a heav’n of heav’ns to me;
And it lifts me up to glory,
For it lifts me up to Thee.

--Words by Samuel Trevor Francis


Just a song that’s been on my mind lately...
