O the Deep Deep Love of Jesus

This hymn was written in 1875 by Samuel Trevor Francis. Isn’t is amazing that Christ’s love for His children has never changed? It is deep! It is vast! It is unmeasured! O praise to His name for such unmerited love. That we would be the beneficiaries of His amazing and perfect love is more than we could ever repay, more than we could ever imagine, more than we are often thankful for. Should we not, as believers, spend our lives worshiping Him with these words and reminding ourselves of His incredible grace and mercy for the rest of our lives?

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 watches o’er His loved ones
Died to call them all His own
How for them He intercedeth
Watches over 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
