1 Infinite, unexhausted Love!
Jesus and love are one;
If still to me thy bowels move,
They are restrain'd to none.

2 What shall I do my God to love!
My loving God to praise?
Thy length, and breadth, and height to prove,
And depth of sov'regin grace?

3 Thy sov'reign grace to all extends,
Immense and unconfin'd;
From age to age it never ends,
It reaches all minkind.

4 Throughout the world its breadth is known,
Wide as infinity!
So wide, it never pass;d by one,
Or it had pass'd by me.

5 My trespass was grown up to heav'n;
But far above the skies,
In Christ abundantly forgiv'n,
I see thy mercies rise!

6 The depth of all-redeeming love
What angel-tongue can tell?
O may I to the utmost prove
The gift unspeakable?

7 Com quickly, gracious Lord, and take
Possession of thine own!
My longing heart vouchsafe to make
Thine everlasting throne!

8 Assert thy claim, maintain thy right,
Come quickly from above;
And sink me to perfection's height,
The depth of humble love.
