Immortal Love For Ever Full,
For Ever Flowing Free,
For Ever Shared, For Ever Whole,
A Never-Ebbing Sea.

Our Outward Lips Confess The Name
All Other Names Above;
Love Only Know Whence It Came
And Comprehend Love.

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:

But Warm, Sweet, Tender, Even Yet
A Present Help Is He;
And Faith Has Still Its Olivet,
And Love Its Galilee.

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.

Through Him The First Fond Prayers Are Said
Our Lips Of Childhood Frame;
The Last Low Whispers Of Our Dead
Are Burdened With His Name.

Alone, O Love Ineffable,
Thy Saving Name Is Given;
To Turn Aside From Thee Is Hell,
To Walk With Thee Is Heaven.
