#104: Immortal Love — Forever Full

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

I don’t really remember this hymn, but singing through it certainly shows a lot of words to try and comprehend the depth of their meaning.

1

Immortal Love —  forever full,

Forever flowing free,

Forever shared, forever whole,

A never-ebbing sea!

2

We may not climb the heav’nly steeps

To bring the Lord Christ down;

In vain we search the lowest deeps,

For Him no depths can drown.

3

But warm, sweet, tender, even yet

A present help is He;

And faith has still its Olivet,

And love its Galilee.

4

The healing of His seamless dress

Is by our beds of pain;

We touch Him in life’s throng and press,

And we are wole again.

5

Thru Him the first fond prayers are said

Our lips of childhood frame;

The last low whispers of our dead

Are burdened with His name.

6

O Lord and Master of us all,

Whate’er our name or sign,

We own Thy sway, we Hear Thy call,

We test our lives by Thine!
