It passeth knowledge


    • It passeth knowledge, that dear love of Thine, 
    • my Saviour, Jesus! yet this soul of mine 
    • would of Thy love, in all its breadth and length, 
    • its height and depth, and everlasting strength, 
    • know more and more. 

    • It passeth telling, that dear love of Thine, 
    • my Saviour, Jesus! yet this heart of mine 
    • would fain proclaim, to sinners, far and near, 
    • a love which can remove all guilty fear, 
    • and love beget. 

    • It passeth praises, that dear love of Thine, 
    • my Saviour, Jesus! yet this heart of mine 
    • would sing that love, so full, so rich, so free, 
    • which brings a rebel sinner, such as me, 
    • nigh unto God. 

    • O fill me, Saviour, Jesus, with Thy love; 
    • lead, lead me to the living fount above; 
    • thither may I, in simple faith, draw nigh, 
    • and never to another fountain fly, 
    • but unto Thee. 

    • And then, when Jesus face to face I see, 
    • when at His lofty throne I bow the knee, 
    • then of His love, in all its breadth and length, 
    • its height and depth, its everlasting strength, 
    • my soul shall sing.
