"But this I know with all my heart..."

" ...his wounds have paid my ransom."

Those are the last lines to a powerfully lyriced song called "How Deep the Father's Love for Us" (Stuart Townsend) The song has been running through my head all day.

Here is the rest of the song;

"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 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."

Just something to think about...

Happy Easter, everyone!
