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.



Campfire Song: Psalm 139:23-24

Seventeenth song from our old songbook is taken from Psalm 139:23-24.


Search me, O God, and know my heart today

Try me, O Saviour; know my thoughts, I pray

See if there be some wicked way in me

Cleanse me from every sin, and set me free

Campfire Song: Isaiah 52:7-10

Taken from Isaiah 52:7-10.


Vs1 How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him
Who brings good news, good news
Announcing peace, pro-claiming news of happiness
Our God reigns, our God reigns
Chorus Our God reigns, our God reigns Our God reigns, our God reigns

Vs2 O watchmen, lift your voices joyfully as one
Shout for your king, your king
See with your eyes the Lord restoring Zion
Your God reigns, your God reigns (chorus)

Vs3 Waste places of Jerusalem, break forth with joy
We are redeemed, redeemed
The Lord has saved and comforted His people
Your God reigns, your God reigns (chorus)

Vs4 Ends of the earth, see the salvation of your God
Jesus is Lord, is Lord
Before the nations He has bared His Holy arm
Your God reigns, your God reigns (chorus)

Song – Psalm 5:1-3

Give ear to my words, O Lord
Consider my meditation
Hearken unto the voice of my cry
My King and my God
For unto Thee will I pray
My voice shalt Thou hear in the morning
O Lord, in the morning will I direct my prayer
Unto Thee and will look up (Repeat last 2 lines)
