How High, How Wide, How Deep

How High, How Wide, How Deep
(Featuring Kurtis Parks and Joel Buckner of National Community Church, Washington, DC)
Here is love, vast as the ocean
Loving kindness as a flood
When the Prince of Life became our ransom
Shed for us His precious blood
Who His love will not remember?
Who can cease to sing His praise?
He can never be forgotten
Throughout heaven’s eternal days
How high, how wide, how deep
Is the Father’s love for me
How high, how wide, how deep
Is the love of Christ in me
On the mount of crucifixion
Fountains opened deep and wide
Through the floodgates of God’s mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide
Grace and love, like mighty rivers
Poured incessant from above
And heaven’s peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love
In truth You do direct me
By Your Spirit through Your Word
Your grace my need is meeting
I trust in You, my Lord
Of Your fullness You are pouring
Your great love and power anew
Without measure, full and boundless
Drawing out my heart to You
My heart to You

This hymn was known as "the love song of the Welsh Revival" of 1904-5, which brought over
150,000 new converts into the churches and had a direct impact on what happened in Azusa
Street in 1906.
