72. O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus

1 O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free!
Rolling as a mighty ocean
In its fullness over me.

2 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.

3 Underneath me, all around me
Is the current of His love;
Leading onward, leading homeward,
To my glorious rest above.
