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 his love
leading onward, leading homeward to that glorious rest above.
2 O the deep, deep love of Jesus, spread his praise from shore to shore!
He who loves us, ever loves us, changes never, nevermore;
he, who died to save his loved ones, intercedes for them above;
he, who called them his own people, watches over them in love.
3 O the deep, deep love of Jesus, love of every love the best,
vast the ocean of his blessing, sweet the haven of his rest!
O the deep, deep love of Jesus--for my heaven of heavens is he;
this my everlasting glory--Jesus' mighty love for me!
