Has there ever been a love so deep? Has there ever been a love so complete? Has there ever been a love so intimate, so passionate?
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
He loves us so completely that He has paid the ultimate price to win our freedom. He did this without complaint, without hesitation, to die upon a cross so that we could gain our salvation.
In His love, through His grace, by faith, we are redeemed…made complete.
“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command.” John 15:12-14
The last part of the song is perhaps my favorite when it says;
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
Thank you Father for your love so complete, so passionate, so deep.
