sunday song

How Deep the Father's Love for Us

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

I am going to try and share a song on my blog every Sunday. This one happens to be one of my favs (the words will definitely get you!) We sang it at church this morning and it touched me once again!


  1. what a great song!
    we have the very same taste in music. each time i tell zach, "i loved that one" - - he always says, that's one of sarah's favorites, too. this is one of those!

  2. That's neat mary! I don't know how I ever sing the last two verses of this song without bursting into tears!!

  3. I so love that song too! my fav on Sunday was the last one Zach did that we didn't have words for...I was in tears...hormones or just me...not sure!!

    Love, Melissa H.
