HOW DEEP THE FATHER’S LOVE FOR US

Verse 1:
How deep the Father’s love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One
Bring many sons to glory

Verse 2:
Behold the man upon the cross
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

Verse 3:
I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

Verse 3b:
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
