Representative Text

1 Like the fullness of the ocean,
Wide, and deep, and strong, and free,
Calling forth my soul's devotion,
Is the love of God to me;
Calling forth my soul's devotion,
Is the love of God to me.

Refrain:
Love of God so full and free,
Evermore abide with me.

2 Like the sweep of yonder river,
Flowing onward to the sea;
Sweet and clear,, refreshing ever,
Is the peace of God to me;
Sweet and clear, refreshing ever,
Is the peace of God to me.

Refrain:
Peace of God so full and free,
Evermore abide with me.

3 Like a spring beneath the mountains,
Rising up, abundant, free,
In my soul a living fountain,
Is the joy of God to me;
In my soul a living fountain;
Is the joy of God to me.

Refrain:
Joy of God so full and free,
Evermore abide with me.

4 Like a star in brightest heaven,
Settled, evermore to be,
Guiding souls to that blest haven,
Is the Word of God to me;
Guiding souls to that blest haven,
Is the Word of God to me.

Refrain:
Word of God so full and free,
Evermore abide with me.

5 Like a breeze perfumed with flowers,
Which we feel, but cannot see,
Girding truth with mighty powers,
Is the Comforter to me;
Girding truth with mighty powers,
Is the Comforter to me.

Refrain:
Comforter, abide with me,
Evermore abide with me.
