Deep and wide

  Deep and wide, deep and wide,
There’s a fountain flowing deep and wide.
Deep and wide, deep and wide,
There’s a fountain flowing deep and wide.

Great song and is one that helps bring joy knowing our Lord still loves us, deeply!

I loved this song since I was little (1976) until now and during my Sunday children's meeting before starting the adult meeting. Praise The Lord, Amen.

As the Lord has been digging up my family stronghold/sin roots, my current one touches a deep place in my heart because I can remember of being a kindgardener and experiencing this sin then. It had become so deeply rooted that I didn't even know it consciously.

So I guess I was in denial concerning this sin. It was revealed during a fast, in fact my church is currently all doing this fast. Anyway this is when the hymn, "Deep and Wide" came to mind, I know it was Jesus that reminded me of this wonderful hymn. This is how He is working in my life today deep and wide! Praise God, I can't say it's pleasant but it's worthwhile that I work along side of Him to pull these roots up to become cleansed than finally pure to experience His holiness and live as He does. Thank you.

It's almost 1:00 AM Oct.16, 2011 and I just got home. As I was driving on my way back home there were bad and sad memories that flashed my thoughts and I can't help but just feel down and lonely...questioning WHY the Lord has allowed such to happen.

I've then noticed that my son has an open window on this PC about Deuteronomy 31:8 that led me to go seek a soothing music at Hymnal.net

Presto, I sought for classic hymns about kids and DEEP & WIDE appeared. I've realized that we DON'T have to be drowned and buried with life's stress and problems. To the contrary, we should "always rejoice" and enjoy the "fountain" flowing deep and wide...we just have to tap this unlimited supply, the Lord's unsearchable riches...how deep and far-reaching.

Amen?

I was inspired that you would like to listen to hymns on your birthday. and I think this song is awesomeness and meaningful, and actually makes sense, which usually are way confusing. I look up to you!

O Lord AMEN! on the Lord's day 10/10/10

(my 15th birthday) we sang this song and came spontaneously up with extra verses, and was so overflowing I had to "post it". I forgot I did until now, and was so happy to see everyone's enjoyment. Hallelujah!!

Deep and wide, deep and wide,

There's a fountain flowing deep and wide.

Deep and wide, deep and wide,

There's a fountain flowing deep and wide.

Take a drink, take a drink,

Take a drink, take a drink,

There's a fountain flowing take a drink.

Jump right in, jump right in,

There's a fountain flowing jump right in.

Jump right in, jump right in,

There's a fountain flowing jump right in.

Sow a seed, sow a seed,

There's a fountain flowing sow a seed.

Sow a seed, sow a seed,

There's a fountain flowing sow a seed.

Help it grow, help it grow,

There's a fountain flowing help it grow.

Help it grow, help it grow,

There's a fountain flowing help it grow.

Take the fruits, take the fruits,

There's a fountain flowing take the fruits.

Take the fruits, take the fruits,

There's a fountain flowing take the fruits.

Three in one, three in one,

There's a fountain flowing three in one.

Three in one, three in one,

There's a fountain flowing three in one.

Ha-lle-lujah, Ha-lle-lujah,

There's a fountain flowing Ha-lle-lujah.

Thank you father, thank you farther,

There's a fountain flowing thank you father.

Thank you father, thank you farther,

There's a fountain flowing thank you father.

I love this song!!! We sing this song in children's meeting and the children love it!!! It has so many more rich verses! Next it is "Take a drink", then "Jump right in", then "Splash around", then "For you for me..."! Hallelujah!

The lovely chorus was authored and composed by Rev. Sydney Cox. It is based on Scripture in the Psalms.
