Oh, The Deep, Deep Love of Jesus – TSMSS

It’s a season of deep disturbances happening around us...

DEEP economic turmoil

DEEP depression and anxiety

DEEP disasters worldwide with so many injured or killed

DEEP destructive forces from addictions and substance abuse

DEEP discussions of unity and compromises that leave GOD out of the picture

But to a child of God, the DEPTH of the love of Christ surpasses any imaginable perception we have of the word DEEP ....

How wide, O how wide Lord
How deep, O how deep Lord
How great, O how great
Is Your love for me

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 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!

S. Tre­vor Fran­cis, 1875.
