How High, How Deep, How Wide (Is Your Love For Me)

You take me higher
Higher than the sky will ever reach
You take me deeper
To explore your love for me
You take me wider
From the west into the east
How high, how deep, how wide
Is Your love for me

You take me higher
You’re the wind that lifts me up
You take me deeper
You’re the treasure of the sea
You take me wider
You’re the wings that shelter me
How high, how deep, how wide
Is Your love for me

[CHORUS]
Higher, Your love covered my sin
Deeper, were the wounds of Calvary
Wider, were your arms stretched out for me
How high, how deep, how wide is Your love for me

This is based on that verse in Ephesians 3:18 where Paul tries to convey the immeasurability of God’s love to us in Jesus Christ. I tried to by as lyrical as possible in this song – painting for myself just how high, how deep and how wide is God’s love for me. My favourite lines are the last four – God’s love was demonstrated most clearly on the Cross.
