Lyrics

O, the depth of love divine!
Jesus died for me;
O, the holy joy that’s mine!
Jesus died for me.

Refrain

He died for me, He died for me;
Jesus died for me;
His life He gave, my soul to save;
For Jesus died for me.

O, the priceless gift of love,
Jesus died for me;
O, the blessèd life I have,
Jesus died for me.

Refrain

O, the grace, abounding grace,
Jesus died for me;
O, the peace, abiding peace,
Jesus died for me.
