1.  Immortal Love, forever full,

Forever flowing free,

Forever shared, forever whole,

A never ebbing sea!

2.  We may not climb the heavenly steeps

To bring the Lord Christ down;

In vain we search the lowest 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,

What e’er our name or sign,

We own thy sway, we hear thy call,

We test our lives by thine.
