1 Who can tell the love of Jesus?
Love for you and me,
Higher than the highest heaven,
Deeper than the sea;
Bringing Him from brightest glory,
Down to Calv’ry’s woe,
That the sinner, lost and low,
Might salvation know.

Refrain:
Down, down, down to the uttermost depths,
His love will seek thee;
Down, down, down to the uttermost depths,
His arms can reach and save thee;
Love, love, boundless and wonderful love of Christ our Saviour,
Higher than the heavens,
Deeper, deeper than the sea.

2 Doubt no more the love of Jesus,
Nor His saving pow’r;
Let His mighty arms enfold thee,
Yield to Him this hour;
He is willing, He is able,
For His grace exceeds
All our longings, all our needs,
Earnest pray’r He heeds. [Refrain]

3 Come and prove the love of Jesus,
Tender, true and strong;
Let Him lift thee to the sunshine,
Fill thy soul with song;
He for thee is interceding,
Far beyond the sky;
Let Him bring thee, by and by,
To His home on high. [Refrain]
