Representative Text

1 O the love of Christ is boundless,
Wider then the widest sea;
Reaching to the vilest sinner,
It hath found out even me.

Even me, yes! even me;
It hath found out even me.
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
It hath found out even me.

2 O the love of Christ is deeper,
Then the darkest, blackest sin;
In the welcome “whosoever”
Even I am counted in.

Even I, yes! even I;
I am His, yes! even I.
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
I am His, yes! even I.

3 O the love of Christ is higher
Than our aspirations are;
And it bids each soul come nearer,
Even me who strayed so far.

Even me, yes! even me;
It hath found out even me.
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
It hath found out even me.

4 O this love is everlasting,
Naught has power to break the tie;
One with Christ, I all inherit,
I am His, yes! even I.

Even I, yes! even I;
I am His, yes! even I.
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
I am His, yes! even I.
