How Deep The Father's Love For Us

Crown him the Lord of love; 
behold his hands and side, 
those wounds, yet visible above, 
in beauty glorified. 
All hail, Redeemer, hail! 
For thou hast died for me; 
thy praise and glory shall not fail 
throughout eternity. 
- Matthew Bridges and Godfrey Thring -

while you read the words of this precious song.

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 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.
- Stuart Townend -

O the deep, deep love of Jesus,
spread His praise from shore to shore,
How He came to pay our ransom 
through the saving cross He bore;
How He watches o'er His loved ones,
those He died to make His own;
How for them He's interceding,
pleading now before the throne.
O the deep, deep love,
all I need and trust
is the deep, deep love of Jesus.
- Samuel Trevor Francis and Bob Kauflin -

Crown him with many crowns, 
the Lamb upon his throne, 
Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns 
all music but its own. 
Awake, my soul, and sing 
of him who died for thee, 
and hail him as thy matchless King 
through all eternity. 

Crown him the Lord of life, 
who triumphed o'er the grave, 
and rose victorious in the strife 
for those he came to save. 
His glories now we sing, 
who died, and rose on high, 
who died, eternal life to bring, 
and lives that death may die. 
- Matthew Bridges and Godfrey Thring -

And the angel answered and said unto the women, 
Fear not ye: 
for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. 
Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
- Matthew 28: 5,6 -

Oh, the LOVE that God has bestowed upon us
by sending His beloved SON to die on the cross for you and for me.
He is not in the grave,
He has blessed us with eternal life
and all we must do is accept His free and precious gift. . .
we must simply believe in His saving grace.

 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 
but have eternal life.
For God so loved the world, 
that he gave his only begotten Son, 
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, 
but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; 
but that the world through him might be saved.
- John 3:15-17 -

Blessings to you, dear friends,
on this beautiful Resurrection Sunday.

I am loved by GOD
and nothing can take this away from me.
