Hymns of The Week~How Deep The Fathers Love For Us by Selah

This is one of my all time favorite hymns!

Yeah, I know that I say that about every single one that I post here, but this time really I mean it!

I even have the lyrics posted on my pinup-board in my bedroom to prove it!!!

How Deep The Father's Love For Us lyrics

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
