1 His love is an ocean so boundless and deep,
It reaches from glory to me;
I’m borne on its current from sin and from self,
Forever with Jesus to be.

Refrain:
His wonderful love, his marvelous love,
Its heights and its depths are unknown;
I’m sure it has reached to the depth of my sin,
And up to the height of his throne.

2 His love is a mountain as high as his throne
And covered with verdure so fair;
With wings as an eagle his children may rise
Its beauty and blessings to share. [Refrain]

3 His love is a sunbeam, diffusing its light
Wherever a sad heart is found;
How quickly life’s shadows depart, and we seem
To walk on delectable ground. [Refrain]
