The hymn “How Deep the Father’s Love for Us” was written by Stuart Townsend. The words are a powerful reminder of the character of God and what He has done to demonstrate His love for us.
I am so thankful for His great love. This song seems a good way to begin this week.
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.
You can listen to it here.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
