How Deep The Father’s Love For Us

From Wikipedia (LOL) – “A hymn is a type of song, usually religious, specifically written for the purpose of praise, adoration or prayer…”  Hope you have a great weekend after a long, productive week of hard work.  Here’s a hymn to get you going….

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.

WALK WORTHY, TRAILMEN!
