Representative Text

1 Jesus’ love in fulness
Like the surging sea,
Rolls in mighty billows
Till it reaches me.

Rolling, rolling,
Jesus’ love and tender mercies o’er me roll;
Rolling, rolling,
Jesus’ love like ocean billows floods my soul.

2 Even me, a sinner,
Jesus came to save;
Precious life a ransom
For my soul He gave. [Refrain]

3 Tides of love eternal
Roll upon the strand;
Earth is full of glory
From the heav’nly land. [Refrain]

4 Still they break in blessing,
Billows of His love;
They at last shall bear me
To the home above. [Refrain]
