Scriptural reference: Ephesians 3:17-18
1. Sing* the deep, deep love of Jesus,
vast, unmeasured, boundless, free!
Rolling as a mighty ocean
in its fullness over me.
2. Underneath me, all around me
is the current of his love;
leading onward, ever homeward
to that glorious rest above.
3. Sing the deep, deep love of Jesus,
spread his praise from shore to shore!
How he died to save his loved ones,
watches o’er them evermore.
4. O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
love of ev’ry love the best;
‘tis an ocean vast of blessing,
‘tis a haven sweet of rest.
5. Sing the deep, deep love of Jesus,
for my heav’n of heav’ns is he;
this my everlasting glory --
Jesus’ mighty love for me!
- Samuel Trevor Francis, alt.
