How Deep the Father's Love for Us

As we remember and celebrate the resurrection of our Savior on this Easter Sunday, I want to share an a video featuring a hymn sung by Phillips, Craig, and Dean. The song is "How Deep the Father's Love for Us," and it never fails to make my heart soar in thanksgiving for the price that was paid to redeem my soul. May it touch your heart as well.



Lyrics by Stuart Christopher Townend:

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
(REPEAT)

Wishing you all a most blessed Easter.
