Finding Out The Greatness

Jesus, I am resting, resting
In the joy of what thou art;
I am finding out the greatness
Of thy loving heart.

O how great thy loving kindness.
Vaster, broader than the sea!
O how marvelous thy goodness,
Lavished all on me!
Yes, I rest in thee, Beloved,
Know thy certainty of promise,
And have made it mine.

Simply trusting thee, Lord Jesus,
I behold thee as thou art,
And thy love, so pure, so changeless,
Satisfies my heart;
Satisfies its deepest longings,
Meets, supplies its every need,
Compasseth me round with blessings;
Thine is love indeed!

-- Jean Sophia Pigott (1876)
