O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus ~ Hymn

2013-09-18 St2

O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus

O 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 His love

Leading onward leading homeward,

To Thy glorious rest above

O the deep, deep love of Jesus

Spread His praise from shore to shore.

How he loveth ever loveth

changeth never, nevermore.

How He watcheth o’er His loved ones,

Died to call them all His own;

How for them He intercedeth,

Watcheth o’er them from the throne!

O the deep, deep love of Jesus

Love of ev’ry, love the best!

‘Tis an ocean vast of blessing,

‘Tis a haven sweet of rest.

O the deep, deep love of Jesus

‘Tis a heav’n of heav’ns to me;

And it lifts me up to glory,

For it lifts me, Lord, to Thee!

Samuel Francis (1834 – 1925)

This is one of my favorite hymns. The words are so rich and the minor key that it is written in takes me back to my Russian heritage.

These photos were taken in St.Ives, England in Cornwall on our trip with Josh and Laura September of 2013.

2013-09-18 St3This weekend I am in Southern California visiting my dear old pop who is so ready to be “lifted to Jesus”. Our mom died on September 13, 2013 and Saturday was the 1st anniversary of her death. Every day is hard for my pop without my mom. Sunday we are joining friends and family with food and good memories of our mom and we will try to encourage each other in the truths we know and are sung in this beautiful hymn. He never changes, He lifts us, He intercedeth, He watches over us from His throne, His blessings are as vast as an ocean. So much to be thankful for. My Father wants His Savior to call him home. We pray he will have peace and joy as he waits for God’s will…

  1. Though it’s not the same without your mom, I’m sure your father appreciates the family gathering around to grieve with him, to encourage him, and to look forward when all loved ones in the Lord will be together again.
