O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus!



	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 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 watcheth 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 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.
	
	by Samuel T. Francis, 1834-1925
