How Deep The Father's Love For Us
We used this modern day hymn in our service this past Sunday and the lyrics were just incredible to me... the line "I hear my mocking voice call out among the scoffers" really puts an emphasis on God's love for us. I know the song is about 10 years old at this point but still well worth reading the words below.
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 left 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
