Here Is Love

William Rees

Verse 1
Here is love, vast as the ocean
Loving-kindness as the flood
When the Prince of Life, 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 heav’n’s eternal days

Verse 2
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 heav’n’s peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love

Verse 3
Let me, all Thy love accepting
Love Thee, ever all my days
Let me seek Thy kingdom only
And my life be to Thy praise
Thou alone shalt be my glory
Nothing in the world I see
Thou hast cleansed and sanctified me
Thou Thyself hast set me free

Verse 4
In Thy truth Thou dost direct me
By Thy Spirit through Thy Word
And Thy grace my need is meeting
As I trust in Thee, my Lord
Of Thy fullness Thou art pouring
Thy great love and pow’r on me
Without measure, full and boundless
Drawing out my heart to Thee
