Hymn/Song Information

The mercy of God is an ocean divine




The mercy of God is an ocean divine,
A boundless and fathomless flood.
Launch out in the deep,
cut away the shore line,
And be lost in the fullness of God.

Launch out, into the deep.
Oh let the shore line go.
Launch out, launch out
in the ocean divine,
Out where the full tides flow.



But many, alas!
only stand on the shore,
And gaze on the ocean so wide.
They never have ventured
its depths to explore,
Or to launch on the fathomless tide.

Launch out, into the deep.
Oh let the shore line go.
Launch out, launch out
in the ocean divine,
Out where the full tides flow.



And others just venture
away from the land,
And linger so near to the shore
That the surf and the slime
that beat over the strand
Dash o’er them in floods evermore.

Launch out, into the deep.
Oh let the shore line go.
Launch out, launch out
in the ocean divine,
Out where the full tides flow.



Oh, let us launch out on
this ocean so broad,
Where floods of salvation o’erflow.
Oh, let us be lost in the mercy of God,
Till the depths of His fullness we know.

Launch out, into the deep.
Oh let the shore line go.
Launch out, launch out
in the ocean divine,
Out where the full tides flow.
