“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
Each Saturday and Sunday during our Bystanders series, we’re taking a pause from our narratives of the minor characters of Easter to enjoy some Passion Week hymns recorded in 2021 by several of our UFC women. Today’s hymn, sung by Jamie Harms, speaks of the depths of God’s love for His children.
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 thy love;
leading onward, leading homeward,
to thy glorious rest above.
made sweet hosannas ring.
Samuel Trevor Francis (1834-1925)
