Stuart Townend Powerful Worship Song How Deep the Father’s Love For Us
Happy 2012! It’s a brand new year. New hope, new plans, new adventures. It’s really awesome to know deep in our heart, thoughts, and spirit, that we have a Father who holds our tomorrow, direct our steps, and brings peace, prosperity and love into our lives!
“Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.”
Stuart Townend, 1995 Thankyou Music, CCL no. 1558110
How deep the Fathers love for us, how vast beyond all measure
That He would 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 powers, 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.
