Another hymn that I love from the pen of Stuart Townend, a contemporary treasure! I challenged Don on this one because all I wanted was simple and slightly country....a single guitar and my violin!! Don calls it 'musical whiplash' which I am famous for. I can't help it if I love lots of musical styles! Its my CD. If I want to do folksy country, I can do folksy country. :)

Lyrics

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 left 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
