‘‘Having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.’’ | John 13:1
Lyrics by Samuel Trevor Francis
Tune by Thomas John Williams, arr. Jody Killingsworth
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 Thy 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, watcheth o’er 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!
