How Deep The Father’s Love For Us by Selah

 

 

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

 

Behold the man upon a 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

 

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 

 

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
