The Army and Navy Hymnal/Hymns/Immortal Love, Forever Full
|104||Immortal Love, Forever Full|
|John G. Whittier, 1866||Arranged from William V. Wallace, 1814-1865|
1.Immortal Love, forever full,
Forever flowing free,
Forever shared,for ever whole,
A never-ebbing sea !
2.We may not climb the heavenly steeps
To bring the Lord Christ down;
In vain we search the low est 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 whole again.
5.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. Amen.
