How Deep the Father's Love for Us....

At the Good Friday Communion Service this morning our congregation sang the song "How Deep the Father's Love for Us".  As you read the words below my prayer is that you will feel the love of the Father and recognize the great sacrifice He made for each one of us!  May you have a Blessed Easter!

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 shoulder;
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.
