“How Deep the Father’s Love for Us” – Monday Musical Musings


Well, here we are. Another Monday. For many, this day is a dreaded one. Time to leave behind the leisure of the weekend and get into the daily routine of going to work.


For me, Monday’s are beautiful days. Mainly because I write about music on this day and music fills my soul with such delight. And specifically on this Monday, I rejoice because the sun is shining and because we had 49 baptisms at Rocky yesterday!


Now don’t get me wrong. I have to go to work today and this is one of my long days. And I have a pile of work to do today. But still, there is much to rejoice about and I intend to stick with this plan!


As I recalled each baptism from yesterday, I was touched by the great love of our heavenly Father. His desire to draw each one closer to Him is just astounding. Mind-blowing. Unfathomable. Deep. And so on this precious Monday morning, I pray that you will rejoice with me as you bask in the deep love of our Father.


“How Deep the Father’s Love for Us”[i]


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

Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
