Word-Filled Wednesday ~#121~ How Deep the Father's Love for Us

How deep the Father's love for us,
 (1 John 3:1) 
How vast beyond all measure
(2 Cor. 9:15)
That He should give His only Son

(John 3:16-17)
To make a wretch His treasure

(Deut. 7:6)

How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away

(Matt. 27:46)
As wounds which mar the chosen One,

(Is. 53:5)
Bring many sons to glory

(Rev. 21:2-4)

Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders

(1 John 2:2)
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
Call out among the scoffers

(Luke 23:35-36)

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished

(Col. 2:14)
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

(John 19:30)

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom

(Prov. 21:30)
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

(Gal. 6:14)
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer

(Job 13:15)
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom

(1 Cor. 15:10; 1 Tim. 1:15-17)
{Lyrics by Stewart Townend} 

Think of these things.
