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.

Representative Text

1 Oh, the deep, unfathomed ocean
Of Jehovah’s mighty love!
How it bears me on its bosom
To the mountain heights above!

Oh, there’s glory in my soul!
And my joy I cannot tell,
For I know that with my Saviour
I am going home to dwell.

2 On that deep, unfathomed ocean,
While I gaze with raptured eyes,
I am lost amid the grandeur,
Overwhelmed with glad surprise. [Refrain]

3 On that deep, unfathomed ocean
I can hear the echoes ring
Through the jasper gates that open
To the palace of the King. [Refrain]

4 On that deep, unfathomed ocean
Into life I soon shall glide,
Floating still in bliss eternal
O’er its calm and peaceful tide. [Refrain]
