3 How Deep the Father’s Love 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.

4 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.

5 Behold, the Man upon a cross, My sin upon His shoulders. Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice Call out among the scoffers.

6 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.

7 I will not boast in anything; No gifts, no pow’r, no wisdom. But I will boast in Jesus Christ, His death and resurrection.

8 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. ***
