Here Is Love Vast As the Ocean Lyrics
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 heaven’s eternal days.
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 heaven’s peace and perfect justice
kissed a guilty world in love.
3 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 power on me
without measure, full and boundless,
drawing out my heart to Thee.
Here Is Love Vast As the Ocean Hymn Story
“Here Is Love Vast as the Ocean” is a Welsh Christian hymn that was written by William Rees. It was translated into English by William Edwards. This song discusses the love of God. Love is the very essence or the very foundation of the Godhead for the bible says, God is Love.
And as the song points out his love is beyond measurement. It is as huge and more so than anything you can imagine.
Romans 5:8 says, “But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us.”
There is no greater proof of the vastness of God’s love than through the death of Jesus Christ on the cross of calvary.
