O The Deep, Deep Love Of Jesus!!

Never, O never forget, my dearest readers, of his unfailing love for his beloved! Though our strength may fail, though our love may be weak, unfaithful, and inconsistent, remember that he is faithful.  He sits on high, and he is perfect in everything.  His love is perfect, and though we turn away, he will chase us down and bring us back to him.  Even in the suffering he sends our way, there is undying love... Remember that he sanctifies us through trials, tribulations, and sorrows, that we may be more like him. "For the Lord will not cast off forever, but, though he cause grief, he will have compassion according to the abundance of his steadfast love, for he does not willing afflict or grieve the children of man." (Lamentations 3:31-33)

This hymn reminds us how faithful and infinite his love is for us...

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 Thy 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 watches 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 every love the best!
'Tis an ocean vast of blessing,
'Tis a haven sweet of rest!
O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
'Tis a heaven of heavens to me;
And it lifts me up to glory,
For it lifts me up to Thee!
