1 The mercy of God is an ocean divine,
A boundless and fathomless flood;
Launch out in the deep, cut away the shore line,
And be lost in the fullness of God.

Chorus:
Launch out, into the deep,
Oh, let the shoreline go;
Launch out, launch out in the ocean divine,
Out where the full tides flow.

2 But many, alas! only stand on the shore
And gaze on the ocean so wide;
They never have ventured its depths to explore,
Or to launch on the fathomless tide. [Chorus]

3 And others just venture away from the land,
And linger so near to the shore
That the surf and the slime that beat over the strand
Dash o'er them in floods evermore. [Chorus]

4 Oh, let us launch out on this ocean so broad,
Where floods of salvation e’er flow;
Oh, let us be lost in the mercy of God,
Till the depths of His fullness we know. [Chorus]
