The Fullness of God

This hymn about God's fullness was written by Australian Roman Catholic priest and liturgist Fr Frank Andersen MSC.

It was originally published in the Eagles Wings collection, and so is now included in Scripture in Song - The Music of Frank Andersen MSC, which is still available.   Both of these publications include lead-sheet style sheet music.

The words are based on Ephesians chapter 3.

The tune was written by Fr Andersen:  it has a 4/4 time signature, and in the key of Bb the first few notes are F_ F F_F F E E D C D E F_, with accompanying chords Bb / Dm7 / Cm7 / F / Bb.

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY 1. Deep in Christ I pray you know the power He can give. May your hidden self grow strong and may you live, Strong in faith and built on lovee, until you know – How high and long, how wide and deep, the fullness of God. 2 May the God of Jesus Christ, the Father we serve Fill your minds that you may see, deep in your heart What hope his call now holds for you, His promise true, to fill your hearts with power to live, the fullness of God. 3 Know the way you learned from Christ, to live life anew Let your hearts be drawn to Him, let Christ renew, The hope in you, to grow into. – goodness and truth And living so you’ll come to know, the fullness of God
