Hymn/Song Information

What shall I do my God to love My loving God to




What shall I do, my God to love,
My loving God to praise!
The length, and breadth,
and height to prove
And depth of sovereign grace?


Thy sovereign grace to all extends,
Immense and unconfined;
From age to age it never ends,
It reaches all mankind.


Throughout the world
its breadth is known,
Wide as infinity,
So wide it never passed by one;
Or it had passed by me.


My trespass was
grown up to heaven;
But, far above the skies,
In Christ abundantly forgiven,
I see thy mercies rise.


The depth of all-redeeming love
What angel tongue can tell?
O may I go to the utmost prove
The gift unspeakable!


Come quickly, then,
my Lord, and take
Possession of Thine own;
My longing heart vouchsafe to make
Thine everlasting throne.


Assert Thy claim, receive Thy right,
Come quickly from above,
And sink me to perfection’s height,
The depth of humble love.
