How Deep the Father's Love for Us

(Kendall Payne)
D Em D/F# G D Bm A
How deep the fathers love for us. How vast beyond all measure
D Em D/F# G D A D
That He should give his only son And make a wretch His treasure
D Em D/F# G D Bm A
How great the pain of searing loss The Father turns His face away
D Em D/F# G D A D
As wounds which mar the Chosen One Bring many son's to glory


D Em D/F# G D Bm A
Behold the Man upon the cross my sin upon His shoulder
D Em D/F# G D A D
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice call out amoung the scoffers
D Em D/F# G D Bm A
It was my sin that held Him there until it was accomplished
D Em D/F# G D A D
His dying breath has brought me life I know that it is finished



D Em D/F# G D Bm A
I will not boast in anything no gifts no power no wisdom
D Em D/F# G D A D
But I will boast in Jesus Christ His death and resurrection
D Em D/F# G D Bm A
Why should I from His reward I cannot give an answer
D Em D/F# G D A D
But this I know with all my heart His wounds have paid my ransom
