I have several favorite hymns I'd love to share - but one at a time.

I tend to be a lover of the minor mode, and some of the hymns that I love best tend to have a wonderful blend of both major and minor chords. One of these hymns is

"O The Deep, Deep Love of Jesus" - written by Sauel Trevor Francis to a traditional Welsh melody.

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, never more.

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 heav'n of heav'ns to me

And it lifts me up to glory

For it lifts me up to Thee.

This blesses my heart so to be reminded of the perfect love God has for me. Infinite, boundless, without reserve, without constraint...THAT is God's love for me. I love to swim in that ocean and to feel His waves wash over me...to let the water carry me from the cares of this world into the bosom of the Father's arms. How can one not be enraptured by the Father with words in our hearts such as this. What a wonderful hymn. What we miss by not having hymnody such as this around anymore.
