How Deep The Father's Love For Us
Stuart Townend - How Deep The Father's Love For Us (Story Behind the Song)
How deep the fathers love for us (instrumental music)
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 His 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 Hos reward?
I cannot give an answer;
But this I know with all my heart-
His wonds have paid my ransom.
I love the tune to this song and I am starting to learn the words.
