Oceans Lyrics

Grander than ocean's story,
Or songs of forest trees;
Purer than breath of morning,
Or evening's gentle breeze;
Clearer than mountain echoes
Ring out from peaks above,
Rolls on the glorious anthem
Of God's eternal love.

Dearer than any friendship
Our truest comrades show;
Stronger than all the yearning
A mother's heart may know;
Deeper than earth's foundations,
And far above all thought;
Broader than Heav'n's high archesó
The love that Christ has brought.

Richer than all earth's treasures,
The wealth my soul receives;
Brighter than royal jewels,
The crown that Jesus gives;
Wondrous the condescension,
And grace beyond degree!
I would be ever singing
The love of Christ to me.
