Deep and Wide 101

One of my favorite childhood songs was Deep and Wide. I looked today for the origin of that song, but could not find it.collage, waterfall, surrendering, kneeling statue, praying statue, praying woman, green valley, mountains, walking boy, deep and wide

“Deep and Wide, deep and wide, there’s a fountain flowing deep and wide.”

A few weeks ago I penned a verse to go with that chorus–

Lord, You are deeper than the pain.

You are wider than the stain.

You are a fountain flowing with love and grace.

Ephesians 3:18

New Living Translation (©2007)
And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.

Romans 8:38-39

New International Version (NIV)

38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Hebrews 4:16

New International Version (©1984)
Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
