Click to listen to the music of Deeper And Deeper and sing along!

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!"

The Gospel song, "Deeper And Deeper" was composed by Oswald J. Smith in 1914.
