[ just a reminder #1 ] His Deep Deep Love


//////////////




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!
~lyrics by Samuel T. Francis

...so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love,  may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. // Ephesians 3:17-19
