Quotations: O the Deep, Deep Love

Photobucket
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!

~ Samuel Francis (words) and Thomas Williams (music)

  1. There is something so satisfying and lovely about the old hymns. There's a depth and intense focus on God rather than ourselves that is so often lacking in more modern songs. Thank you for reminding me of one of my old favorites!
