How Deep the Father’s Love

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.
