Your love is greater than the highest heights of heaven

There are two versions of the text for this song.
The second version, shown further down the page, is for the alternative arrangement

YOUR LOVE IS GREATER THAN
the highest heights of heaven;
what a mystery,
that Christ should die for me!
Your love goes deeper than
the depths of sinful man—
I plunge beneath your waves of grace.

(Pre-chorus:)
Here at the cross I find your endless mercy,
here at the cross my heart will sing.

(Chorus:)
Your great love, vast as ocean waves,
covers me with grace, covers me with grace.
Your great love wraps around my soul,
eternally it holds firm in its embrace.

2. The cross of Jesus Christ,
God’s perfect sacrifice,
ransomed and redeemed,
bore the wrath for me.
No love could be so great:
dying, you took my place
and seated me in heights above.

Here at the cross I find your endless mercy,
here at the cross my heart will sing.

Your great love, vast as ocean waves,
covers me with grace, covers me with grace.
Your great love wraps around my soul,
eternally it holds firm in its embrace.

Here at the cross I find your endless mercy,
Here at the cross my heart will sing.
I lift my voice, for you alone are worthy
and you deserve the highest praise.

For your great love, vast as ocean waves,
covers me with grace, covers me with grace.
Precious blood, that washed away my sin,
purging every stain, bringing peace with God.

Your great love, vast as ocean waves,
covers me with grace, covers me with grace.
Your great love the anthem of the cross,
the song within my heart of joy and endless praise.
