26. O Love Divine, Thou Vast Abyss

6-8s.
by J.A. Rothe, tr. by J. Wesley
1
O love divine, Thou vast abyss!
 
Our sins are swallowed up in Thee;
 
Covered is our unrighteousness;
 
From condemnation we are free:
 
In Jesus' blood our hearts can trace
 
The boundless riches of Thy grace.
2
Fixed on this ground must we remain;
 
Though heart may fail and flesh decay,
 
This anchor shall our souls sustain,
 
When earth and heaven shall pass away.
 
Mercy's full worth we then shall prove,
 
Loved with an everlasting love.
