How Deep the Father's Love for Us

Our homeschool group presented their end of the year program last weekend and sang this beautiful song. I wanted to share the words with you, it's been on my heart and the melody on my lips ever since.

How Deep the Father's Love for Us

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 turned 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 cal 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.

My oldest daughter and I went shopping for material for her quilt. I will be using the same pattern for the one I made my younger daughter. This is what she chose.
