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 would give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face a way
As wounds which mar the chosen One
Bring many sons to glory
 
Verse 2
Be hold the Man upon a cross
My sin upon His shoulders
A shamed 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 powr's no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection
Why should I gain from His reward
I cannot give a answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
 
End
Why should I gain from His reward
I cannot give a answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
His wounds have paid my ransom
