439. Love divine, from Jesus flowing

1 Love divine, from Jesus flowing,
Living waters rich and free,
Wondrous love without a limit,
Flowing from eternity;
Boundless ocean,
I would cast myself on thee.

2 Love surpassing understanding,
Angels would the mystery scan,
Yet so tender that it reaches
To the lowest child of man.
Let me, Jesus,
Fuller know redemption’s plan.

3 Love that pardons past transgression,
Love that cleanses every stain,
Love that fills to overflowing
Yet invites to drink again;
Precious fountain,
Which to open Christ was slain.

4 From my soul break every fetter,
Thee to know is all my cry;
Saviour, I am thine for ever,
Thine I’ll live and thine I’ll die,
Only asking
More and more of love’s supply.
