1 O love divine, unfathomed!
O shoreless sea of bliss!
Thy throne the highest heaven,
Yet flowing down to this
Dark world of guilt and sorrow,
Redeems the fettered soul;
Thy paths of peace I follow,
O love, our hearts extol!

Refrain:
O love! supreme affection!
We bow low at thy shrine,
Love is our great salvation;
O love divine!

2 Enshrined within the bosom
Of Father’s tender love,
We seem in deep mid-ocean
Of heaven’s bliss above;
Oh, wonders of redemption!
We gaze in silent awe
Upon the new creation,
Where love is freedom’s law. [Refrain]

3 Worlds of ecstatic glory
Love opens to our view,
Where saints and angels truly
Find joys forever new;
Sweet element of heaven!
He is supremely blest
Who, in thy sea o’erwhelmed
Has found eternal rest. [Refrain]

4 Love holds a royal scepter,
And Mercy looketh down,
Both calling to the sinner,
“Come wear a starry crown”;
Oh, sweet divine compassion!
Poor sinner, taste and see,
If grace thy heart may fashion,
Then love shall reign in thee. [Refrain]
