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

This is a very nice song.it really should remind us as children of the lord jesus christ,of his love for us to die upon the tree and it should help us to live a christ-like life,and be able to serve him more and more.

The song is really amazing! It makes me feel as if we\'ve just entered heaven and the song is played as we approach the face of God, getting to meet Jesus face to face. I love it!

Possibly my favorite hymn of all time. God\'s love for us truly is amazing. Every day we mock him and spit in his face yet he still died to save us.

This is one of my favourite songs. When the youth minister at my church (who was leaving) did his last sermon, we played this song after and all of us there were in tears. I could barely sing because I kept blubbering, and poor Julia on the drums couldn't play a single beat because she was too busy wiping her eyes. Fantastic song, it truly speaks to me how truly deep our heavenly Father loves us, even when our voices are among the scoffers.

Awesome song, speaking of the very core of our message as Christians. J just sang this special song at the Nigerian Baptist Theological Seminary, Nigeria. And lots of people were deeply moved by the message of the song. There were teary eyes. Such that I had to give the score away when they pressed for it. I added a fourth stanza which goes: "This is the message that we preach; The mesage of salvation His pious death upon the tree; Victorious ressurrection Why should we speak of anything else? What hope may we now offer? none, but the powr'ful name of Christ His death and ressurection." I hope it proves a worthy addition to that great song. Regards, Oscar King (Nigeria)

I love this song it exsplanes alot about how a christian is or should be and about God and his love is so strong i cant even speak the words or come up with words to say. But You know what kills me so much is to watch the novies passion of the christ and other movies like that and then still see people reject him and and make fun christians. Just seeing what he went through and how he died to save us and yet while we were still sinners Christ died for the un godly.
