Delighting in the Deep

"Thou, LORD, hast made me glad through Thy work… O LORD, how great are Thy works!  And Thy thoughts are very deep" (Psalm 92:4,5).  "The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life" (Proverbs 14:27).  "Blessed be the God… who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ… that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe" (Ephesians 1:3,18,19). 

The Lord has made us glad indeed
Through all the works of Jesus Christ. 
He met the sinner's deepest need
When He for us was sacrificed. 

His thoughts are deeper than the sea
And higher than the highest mountain!
His truth endures eternally;
His love is an eternal fountain! 

His blessings flowing every hour
From heaven's height to us are falling. 
Behold the greatness of His power,
His glory, and His gracious calling! 

O Lord, we all were straying sheep
Until You found and rescued us. 
We are delighting in Your deep
And matchless love so marvelous!
