O The Deep Deep Love of Jesus



Trevor Francis (1834-1925)


O, the deep, deep love of Jesus!
Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free;
Rolling as a mighty ocean
In its fulness 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, nevermore;
How He watches oer His loved ones,
Died to call them all His own;
How for them He intercedeth,

Watcheth oer 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 heaven of heavens to me;
And it lifts me up to glory,

For it lifts me up to Thee.
