Oh The Deep, Deep Love Of Jesus

Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Shore-less, boundless, full and free;
Empty cross and tomb proclaiming
God, my Father's love for me.

And when storms of life are raging;
Home and loved ones far away;
I will listen for the voice that
Calmed the waves on Galilee.

Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Vast unmeasured boundless free;
Deeper than the deepest ocean
Is my Saviour's love for me.

Through the long, cold nights of waiting
Or the weary work-long day,
One who made the star-lit heavens
Travels in the boat with me.

Though it seems at times He's sleeping
While the towering waters rage,
Everlasting arms surround me
Always, always.

Friend of mine, yes friend of sinners,
Teach me your befriending love -
Like a current through me flowing
From the Father's heart above.
