1 Immortal Love, for ever full,
Forever flowing free,
Forever shared, forever whole,
A never-ebbing sea!
2 We may not climb the heav'nly steeps
To bring the Lord Christ down;
In vain we search the lowest deeps,
For Him no depths can drown.
3 But warm, sweet, tender, even yet
A present help is he;
And faith has still its Olivet,
And love its Galilee.
4 The healing of His seamless dress
Is by our beds of pain;
We touch Him in life's throng and press,
And we are whole again.
5 O Lord and Master of us all,
Whate'er our name or sign,
We own Thy sway, we hear Thy call,
We test our lives by Thine!
