O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus!!

This wonderful, wonderful hymn has been on my heart for a while, ever since the groomsmen at my sisters weddding sang this during the ceremony. This is one of my most favorite hymns, and I just couldn't resist posting the lyrics on here.

O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus--words by S. Trevor Francis, music by John Zundel

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 loveLeading 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 full of blessing, ’tis a haven giving 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!

One of the most soothing, beautiful arrangements of this song I have heard is done by Jeff Bjorck. If you go out to his you can listen to a sample of it.

This is a beautiful hymn!! I play the violin (learning the guitar-sorta kinda) and by your site have a renewed interest in music. Life here is so busy that music has taken a backseat except for singing. Thank you for the reminder to soak in it!
