Here is love, vast as the ocean

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

Here is love, vast as the ocean,

Loving-kindness as the flood;

When the Prince of life my ransom,

Shed for me his precious blood.

Who His love will not remember?

Who can cease to sing His praise?

He shall never be forgotten,

Thro’ heaven’s everlasting days.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the mount of crucifixion,

Fountains opened deep and wide,

Thro’ the flood-gates of Gods mercy

FIowed the vast arid gracious tide;

Grace and love like mighty rivers

Poured incessant from above,

And heaven’s peace and perfect justice

Kissed a guilty world in love.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let me all Thy love accepting,

Love Thee, ever all my days;

Let me seek Thy kingdom only

And my life be to Thy praise;

Thou alone shalt be my glory,

Nothing in the world I see:

Thou hast cleansed and

sanctified me,

Thou Thyself hast set me free.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Thy truth Thou dost direct me

By Thy Spirit through Thy Word;

And Thy grace my need is meeting,

As I trust in Thee, my Lord.

All Thy fulness Thou art pouring

In Thy love and power in me,

Without measure, full and boundless,

As I yield myself to Thee.
