Deeper and Deeper

By Oswald J. Smith

      Into the heart of Jesus
      Deeper and deeper I go,
      Seeking to know the reason
      Why He should love me so,
      Why He should stoop to lift me
      Up from the miry clay,
      Saving my soul, making me whole,
      Though I had wandered away.

      Into the will of Jesus,
      Deeper and deeper I go,
      Praying for grace to follow,
      Seeking His way to know;
      Bowing in full surrender
      Low at His blessed feet,
      Bidding Him take, break me and make,
      Till I am molded, complete.

      Into the cross of Jesus
      Deeper and deeper I go,
      Following through the garden,
      Facing the dreaded foe;
      Drinking the cup of sorrow,
      Sobbing with broken heart,
      "O Savior, help! Dear Savior, help!
      Grace for my weakness impart."

      Into the joy of Jesus
      Deeper and deeper I go,
      Rising, with soul enraptured,
      Far from the world below.
      Joy in the place of sorrow,
      Peace in the midst of pain,
      Jesus will give, Jesus will give;
      He will uphold and sustain.

      Into the love of Jesus
      Deeper and deeper I go,
      Praising the One Who brought me
      Out of my sin and woe;
      And through eternal ages
      Gratefully I shall sing,
      "O how He loved! O how He loved!
      Jesus, my Lord and my King!"
