Verses: 
5

Verse 1
What shall I do my God to love,
My loving God to praise?
The length and breadth and height to prove,
And depth of sovereign grace?

Verse 2
Thy sovereign grace to all extends,
Immense and unconfined;
From age to age it never ends;
It reaches all mankind.

Verse 3
Throughout the world its breadth is known,
Wide as infinity;
So wide it never passed by one,
Or it had passed by me.

Verse 4
The depth of all-redeeming love,
What angel tongue can tell?
O may I to the utmost prove
The gift unspeakable!

Verse 5
Come quickly, gracious Lord, and take
Possession of thine own;
My longing heart vouchsafe to make
Thine everlasting throne.
