If you know where to get a bet­ter pho­to of Jones,


Deeper, deep­er in the love of Je­sus
Daily let me go;
Higher, high­er in the school of wis­dom,
More of grace to know.


O deep­er yet, I pray,
And high­er ev­ery day,
And wis­er, bless­èd Lord,
In Thy pre­cious, ho­ly Word.

Deeper, deep­er, bless­èd Ho­ly Spir­it,
Take me deep­er still,
Till my life is whol­ly lost in Je­sus,
And His per­fect will.


Deeper, deep­er! though it cost hard tri­als,
Deeper let me go!
Rooted in the ho­ly love of Je­sus,
Let me fruit­ful grow.


Deeper, high­er, ev­ery day in Je­sus,
Till all con­flict past,
Finds me con­quer­or, and in His own im­age
Perfected at last.


Deeper, deep­er in the faith of Je­sus,
Holy faith and true;
In His pow­er and soul ex­ult­ing wis­dom
Let me peace pur­sue.
