Verse 1
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. 
Verse 2
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. 
Verse 3
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.
