Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

477. 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!
Underneath me, all around me, is the current of his love
leading onward, leading homeward to that glorious rest above.

2 O the deep, deep love of Jesus, spread his praise from shore to shore!
He who loves us, ever loves us, changes never, nevermore;
he, who died to save his loved ones, intercedes for them above;
he, who called them his own people, watches over them in love.

3 O the deep, deep love of Jesus, love of every love the best,
vast the ocean of his blessing, sweet the haven of his rest!
O the deep, deep love of Jesus--for my heaven of heavens is he;
this my everlasting glory--Jesus' mighty love for me!
