398. O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus

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 that glorious rest above!

2 O the deep, deep love of Jesus--
spread his praise from shore to shore!
How he loves us, ever loves us,
changes never, nevermore!
How he watches o'er his loved ones,
died to call them all his own;
how for them he's interceding,
watching o'er them from the throne!

3 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 heaven of heavens to me;
and it lifts me up to glory,
for it lifts me up to thee!
