How Deep The Father's Love

Hope you all 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 deep the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the holy 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

Seeing the time of the video was 4:44, I'm supposing the comment was from you, dad.

This is an amazing song. I've never heard this version, but it moves me to tears every time I hear it. Thanks for sharing...
