Music Monday – O The Deep, Deep Love

This song was originally written by Samuel Trevor Francis in 1875. There have been many renditions to the song over the years. My particular favorite is arranged by Sovereign Grace Music. As Christians it is impossible to capture the entire depth of Christ love for us. His love surpasses knowledge (Ephsians 3:19). Let this song be a reminding of his great love for his sheep.

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!
