Monday Morning Melody

I’m resurrecting Monday Morning Melody today to bring you these beautiful words by Samuel Trevor Francis (1834-1925). Sang this song in church yesterday and was struck anew by the richness of these words–and of God’s love!

Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free.
Rolling as a mighty ocean
In its fullness over me,
Underneath me, all around me
Is the current of Your love.
Leading onward, leading homeward
To Your glorious rest above.

Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Spread His praise from shore to shore.
How He came to pay our ransom,
Through the saving cross He bore,
How He watches o’er His loved ones,
Those He died to make His own.
How for them He’s interceding,
Pleading now before the throne.

Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus,
Far surpassing all the rest.
It’s an ocean full of blessing
In the midst of every test.
Oh the deep, deep love of Jesus.
Mighty Savior, precious Friend,
You will bring us home to glory
Where Your love will never end.
