1 What shall I do my God to love,
my loving God to praise?
the length, and breadth, and height to prove,
and depth of sovereign grace?
2 Your sovereign grace to all extends,
immense and unconfined;
from age to age it never ends,
to reach all humankind.
3 Throughout the world its breadth is known,
wide as infinity;
so wide it never passed by one,
or it had passed by me.
4 My trespass was grown up to heav'n;
but far above the skies,
in Christ abundantly forgiv'n,
I see your mercies rise.
5 The depth of all-redeeming love,
what angel tongue can tell?
O may I to the utmost prove
the gift unspeakable.
6 Come quickly, gracious Lord, and take
possession of your own;
my longing heart be pleased to make
your everlasting throne.
