1.  O love, how deep, how broad, how high,
    How passing thought and fantasy,
    That God, the Son of God, should take
    Our mortal form for mortals' sake.

2.  For us baptized, for us He bore 
    His holy fast and hungered sore;
    For us temptations sharp He knew,
    For us the tempter overthrew.

3.  For us to evil power betrayed,
    Scourged, mocked, in purple robe arrayed,
    He bore the shameful cross and death,
    For us gave up His dying breath.

4.  For us He rose from death again;
    For us He went on high to reign;
    For us He sent the Spirit here
    To guide, to strengthen, and to cheer.

5.  All glory to our Lord and God
    For love so deep, so high, so broad:
    The Trinity whom we adore
    Forever and forevermore.
